Joe Erskine

Well, what a great weekend. So good to see old friends and make some new ones. Well done to Paul and Debbie Nolan for the orgaisiation with Shirley Winn of Isle-of-Wight Tours.


I have agreed to stay on as a SAMA (82) Trustee for another year.


I was good to attend the NMA and see the Information plaque that has been erected at the Falklands Mamorial.


Our next outing is to the SAMA (82) weekend event at The George Inn, Finchdean - Thur 23rd May to Mon 27 May - with Shep Woolley entertaining on the Saturday night (see Caravan and Camping Forum for details) - all welcome. It should be a great weekend. Caravan and Camping facilities at the back of the pub (must book through Bungy) or day run from home or a local Hotel.

Booties Funeral

Well about 100 others turned up for ex Royal Marine, Jimmy McConnel's funeral at Milton Cemetary today. A couple of dozen SAMA (82) members were in attendance.


It was good to give an old Bootie who had no family a good send off. 4 Standards and about a dozen RBL Riders (who escorted the hearse).


Duty done in the freezing cold I made my way home.
