This tale was related to me by Patrick McGarry who was one of the last to leave Bridgnorth.He recalls being among Flt.19, 'B' Sqdn Hut 155 at the ceremony of the Keys on 7th Feb1963 and his passing out on the 8th Feb. Snow was on the ground. He remembers big white mug and irons and the stuff they put into the tea and running around with one boot stuffed with paper after putting them on a hot stove to dry. His D.I.'s were
Cpl. Hirons and Sgt. Brown.
