The most moving moment was when we got talking to `Bill` who was brought along in his wheel chair by one of the nurses. He was a bit slow in opening up but when Alan asked him what he had got up to in the war he became a bit emotional when telling us that he started off by landing at Le Havre and shortly after was sent to Africa and then on the Singapore . At this point he burst out crying as he told us that he had then spent three and half years with the Japanese as a prisoner . We all felt rather guilty afterwards
for bring back what must have been some horrible memories .
The rest of the afternoon was spent in a lighter vein.
Many Club members will have over the years attended the Remembrance Day gatherings many of which were organised by the Late Eve Pullen. Eve died just before the 2016 ride down to Shoreham and following the Service riders completed a ride past her home and now to complete the acknowledgement of her efforts over the years a plaque was placed at Shoreham Airport. The following pictures follow the events of the evening gathering.
Cadillac Country in full swing. The Pagham table continues to grow. The hardest working member...........again.
QUIZ FRIDAY MARCH 24th 2017
Mid session and the quizzers tuck into some quality food thanks to Steve slaving way in the car park and after a gruelling quiz well presented by Geoff Baker he presented the worthy winners with 'gold' medals whilst Bernie presented the shield. Ticko's Tigers didn't quite romp to victory as there were three teams scoring equally requiring not one but two dead heat deciders.
