RE: The United States Air Force


Hi John -

I do in fact and I noticed the Rod and Gun Club sign picture you posted from Ben****ers.  My mom actually worked there for some months when my dad was stationed at RAF Ben****ers/Woodbridge between 1983 and 1991.

We first lived in the village of Shottisham and some of my closest friends were Neal and Martin Chattington and Ian and Brian Cooper.  We rented a house owned by Peter Nickels at the tome of Villa Hill and I have very fond memories of our time there.

It seems like a lifetime ago since I left in 1991 but the Internet and technology helps to make the world seem a smaller place.  It's fun taking nostalgic drives down memory lane with the help of great tools like Google Earth.

If anyone reading this remembers me or knows someone I've mentioned above, please feel free to contact me at robert_cutchens@yahoo.com.

Best always,

Robert
