34 Squadron

This is the main page for the squadron or unit. More info will be added here as I get the time, but for now it's a "base" for establishing comms with other members of the same unit. You can post messages for other members of the same unit using the messages link above this blurb, and you can also search for other members of this unit. Once you find them, click on their name to send an email direct to them. Please note that this website doesn't "remember" your emails, they are sent direct from you to the recipient without sappers.co.uk getting in the way. That helps you get in touch quickly and it keeps everything simple and free. Have fun. Gordon


I am trying to locate the following people who I served with in 34 Sqn at waterbeach from 1982-1985. Sean Dungate RE. Ian brown (REME) and Dave Bishop (ACC) I have some very bad news about an old mate of ours and I think they need to know. My wife has been through bookface to no avail. So sending out an message in the hope that someone can shed some light. Thanks, Jim Phillips (jimphillips9708@icloud.com)

trying to find anybody that remembers me,i dont have many photos from that period and my memory is starting to fade, woundering if there is any group or reunions or has the squadron simply dissappeared

Hello Geordie , it's Jim Phillips. I was in 34 from 82-85 1tp. With Mick Hardwick Mac macormac, Sean dungate, graham seabourne. Dave bishop was our chef. Tim Middleton to name but a few. The sqn had just returned from Belize. The we did the Falklands and then our troop went to Kenya. Any joy?

Jim - just waiting for a 'call back' from an ACC pal of mine who may have found your boy Dave Bishop.

Thank you very much for your help. But some how either through yourself or other means Dave bishop contacted me on Wednesday 13 April. I have yet to find out how he found me. Still, thank you again for your time and help in tracking him down. A friend of ours when we served together took his own life a short time ago and I was trying to let as many people as I could know. So thank you again
Jim Phillips

There seems to be no way to show a posting to CE East Africa Command? As I was posted there in 1949 maybe it was to long ago? I also served at the GE Gilgil and Stores Depot in Nairobi.

34 Field Squadron (Air Support). Is this the same Unit? What is the meaning and purpose of the change in the name to "Independant"?

Steve Kearns is somewhere in East Anglia as far as I know. I played in the same local football team as him back in the late 80's, last I heard he was in Norwich and Jim Duffy is back up in Scotland (his email is on here)
