    Justin Shaw was a nice bloke I met him in Derby.

    There were CO's I didn't gel with (I don't like to name them on a public forum but if I say I didn't gel with them I hope it is not seen as slanderous).

    Ray Shah

    Richard Cullen

    Ernie Beavor - armageddon Ernie - he was a pleasant old boy. Daft as a brush of course, he was also Wilf Gooch's FIL.

    Charlie Scurlock was a miserable old bugger, as was his wife. It's hard to imagine anyone less Christ-like. John Hobden was only marginally better.

    Bill Harris was alright, but a bit mad.

    David Lane seemed like a genuinely nice guy.

    I can't even remember our current CO's name. Does anyone else know?

    Slim - you do realise that everyone has a different CO depending on what circuit they're in?!!

    Yeah but some people know what circuit I'm in and might know his name.

    Ayrshire no. 1 I think it's called (Ha nearly forgot even that!)

    I think I heard we are getting a new CO soon anyway.

    lol - wow, yours must be a true "apostate circuit" if they're all on here! Whoever your CO is, clearly he's not doing his job properly!

    I heard a whisper that the COs are due for rotation soon, if it hasn't already happened.

    The new one will probably be as forgettable as the last. 

    Scotland is the epicentre of apostasy didn't you hear?
