RAF Little Rissington, The Vintage Pair in 1974
Written by John ClintonI’m not sure of the actual year (I’ve put 1974). I remember being in the team that first refurbished the Vintage Pair. I can’t remember many of my fellow A/Fitt/A’s in fact the only one I can remember is Sgt Rapley. I remember that the program Star Trek was well liked by many of us at the time. Sgt Rapley cut out a sillouette of the spaceship enterprise and stuck it on to the tail fin.
RAF Little Rissington, The FOX Pub at The Barrington’s in 1973
Written by John ClintonI’ll Never forget it. This was/is a nice Little pub in the quiet village of the Barringtons a few miles from Little Riss’. We had many a good night there. To add to the night’s activities, there was a little river that was close to the pub. Over the river there was a couple of narrow pipes. When we were quiet well pissed we of course had to see who could get across the pipes without falling in the river! Not many of us did actually get to the other side. We would fall in the river and then try again. The more we tried the wetter the pipes. Good Times!
