When Peter Willis saw this it brought back many memories. However, he says it must have been 1954 as he joined the army in 1955 and was in Cyprus in 1956.

Sorry Bill, but if it was 1954 I was still at school - so I accept it may have been early 1955, I joined the RAF 16.1.1957 having been a cadet for just under 2 years.

Hello to the cadets in the photo taken at the rear of Police HQ Aycliffe. Sorry to say this message is three years late. I am now living in Richmond, North Yorkshire and would like for any of you to get in touch with me for a chat or perhaps even to arrange a reunion. I can be reached on peter@peterreay.com.
