    A FEW WEST COAST PICS

    I think that should have been Que sera sera, in case a few Pedants are reading.

    A FEW WEST COAST PICS

    Great Pics, Bike and owner both looking well. You are like me I manage to post a photograph and then the next time I try it takes me all day. Che Sera Sera as they say.
  3. I had the same bike as Alan (Oban1) when I was in the Fleet Air Arm stationed at HMS Goldcrest

    or RNAS Brawdy  near Haverford West in Pembrokeshire in South Wales. Returning from a weekend at home in Oldham, Lancs the bike broke down in the Bala area. I had to leave the bike

    with a farmer who had come to my assistance and hitched back to base. Before I could

    arrange to go and retrieve the bike I was posted to Singapore this was in 1961. I got in touch with the farmer and he said no worries the bike will be here when you come back.

    I wasn't able to go and get the bike until 1965 when I got back to the UK after having my

    tour in Singapore extended to replace someone who had gone sick on HMS Albion. With a little

    help from the farmer we managed to get the bike going and I just about managed to get back to South Wales. Happy Days.

      Lawrie - what a great story. Not sure how it got in your profile - shouldn't it be in the thread under OBAN's post ?  Not sure everyone will see it here.
