|CHIEFY (ROY) THOMAS AT THE 1995 REUNION||AS USUAL JOHN McLAREN WITH IT WASN'T ME CHIEF|
My sincere thanks for a memorable weekend. The food, accomodation and organisation was of the highest standard. Above all that, the thing which impressed me most of all was the true spirit of comradeship shown by all present, an experience that I will never forget. I know I am only an Honorary Member, but looking back and remembering how I helped at the start of your careers made me feel proud.
The hard work you and your Committee have done to rekindle the 51st Entry spirit is amazing - well done. I have always said that the highlight of my service was my tour with the Halton Brats. To see so many who have made good, gives me a lot of satisfaction. Thank you for inviting me again. If my health holds out, I'll be honoured to attend again, but please let me pay my way.
Please pass on my thanks to all members and their guests for the warmth and sincerity of the reception which I was given.
All the best,
As all members who attended the reunion at Halton will remember Boggy's son Tony
presented his fathers Bible and pace stick to the association so that it could be placed in the Museum at Halton.
On a recent visit to Halton for a meeting, our Secretary Ken Savage looked in on the museum,and a mounted photograph of Boggy together with his pace stick were on show. Ken took a photo as he thought members would be interested to see them We have included this on the web so that those members who were unable to attend the reunion can see it.
