52 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

Great posting...many detatcments in UK and overseas usually short term think lowest was to whoops ta camp

A short stag ,one pay day I was told not to disappear as I was being sent to Bradford to lay a macadam floor for the Bradford RE TA. One week’s job ended up as a couple of months living out of the bosses office who at the time was Mr engineer of Britain who was in the process of completing of the M62 ? Got to meet Les Kellet the wrestler while there and believe as the guy who ended up driving the lads into Bradford that I was part and parcel of them being given the freedom of the city . Worked out ok in the end.though got wrong for my long hair regardless of the fact I had not been paid in all that time other than what the boss man was kind enough to give me, a lovely man shame I can’t remember his name.
