Brigend

nice town spent many a happy section piss up there but my favourite was always Llantwitt Major in the 70's every Friday afternoon awash with blue uniforms on the piss. The guy I knew was an OK guy but he would now and then be anti English and spiteful  and it's something that's always puzzled my --- why ? my wifes snipe on Saturday --- why ? she's married to an Englishman ! I really don't give a monkeys who wins what, if England win well, OK that's nice but I'm not going to wish another UK team loses for the sake of it --- very strange.

With the Welsh and the Scots its just bitterness...

because they are the furthest counties away from the heart of England. I have some top mates both Welsh and Porridge and the banter between us in intense and sometimes bnag, however we are all mates and I'd happily have them at my back any day of the week So this time it was my turn to get chopsy, i'm quite sure ill be crucified in the not to distant future. I think it may have been the '98 '99 six nations when the porridge beat England handing the tournament to Wales, a welsh mate who worked in the office next door took my door off its hinges because i wouldn't unlock it, just so he could laugh in my face and sit in my chair singing bread of heaven or some equally welsh ode.

Yeah Vulcan...

....Bridgend is not that nice anymore, full of chavs, most of the clubs have gone now, St Athan used to have the FBI club years ago, not sure if that was there in your time?

Llantwit Major, most amazing roads around the airport for a spin when the weather is good.:biggrin::biggrin: Just watch out for the filth in vans!

The FBI !

The Fisherbridge Inn yes that was in my time, do you remember the RAF guy who worked there and murdered his wife in the married quarters ? a good mate of mine found her body, our section cleaner worked at the FBI with him, topped himself in Cardiff prison. Used ro ride the RAF horses up that road past the airfield. Do you know a guy called John Clarey ? he lived in Llantwit.

Vulcan......

....No i'm afraid i only remember the club being there, obviously i saw lots of RAF peeps but was not in myself, just used to go to Llantwit and surrounding areas playing rugby and generally on the piss, don't recall the murder now, but i do recall seeing a girl from the housing estate opposite the base in St. Athan, her father was an America Officer based there, her name was Amelia something, her dad must have been well up in the service as he had front seats at the airshow they used to put on and he gave me Twenty quid for looking after his younger child with his daughter for two hours, Twenty quid, i was really chuffed.:biggrin::biggrin::biggrin:

The FBI

in my time was a pub outside the camp, the club on the camp run by the NAAFI (no ambition and fuckall interest) was called the Red Dragon. I was first there in 1970 to 73 then again 83 to 85 plus courses in between. In the 70's we saw groups like Slade et al in the Red Dragon. I am quite old :wink:

A little before my time Vulcan, It was about 92 0r 93 when i was sniffing about down there, Last year me and some of my mates went to St. Athan and parked up on the road just outside the airfield (on the main coast road) to watch the last remaining Vulcan Bomber doing its flypast, Awesome sight and sound, my mate works for Irvine GQ so has some interest in military things.:smile
