Did anyone live in Dhekelia in 1976? Old man was stationed there and we lived at 2 mons road. Im 41 now so would have been 9 then. The cinema opposite cessac was open then but is now a guard room i believe! Food was great at cessac then too!

I spent a few holidays on Normandy Road.
I remember getting a rollocking once for riding a bike without a shirt. Not the done thing, apparently.

Boy, that hill was a b'stard to ride up!

Hi Matty - I knew your mum and dad very well - we had quite a few social nights out with them - in fact your dad and my husband Dennis were in the same troop together at Ay Nik camp (9 Sigs).
I also know Anita and Ray Dudding - I still keep in contact with Anita - she lives in Kiddiminister in Worcs.
Say hi to your mum and dad from me.
Noreen.

Matty, I too am so sorry to hear about your dad - please accept my sympathy from Dennis and I. Give you mum our best wishes. Our surname is Southwick.
Am I correct in saying you have a sister - I think her name is Julie?
Where are you now - are you back in Cyprus at the moment?

Kind regards Noreen

Noreen, yes i do have a sister called julie and a brother called mark, unfortunately i live in Banbury now and have a son who is 21 and at uni studying law , plus a daughter who is 9 tomorrow! we have holidayed in cyprus quite alot - in fact my brother and i were out there last may and in my opinion they seem to ruin it year by year!! All the bondu is gone , like they have flattened it and you cant move for building sites. Anyway thats my gripe out of the way. Thankyou for your thoughts on dad and mum says hi to you both !!

Hi Matty
Good to hear from you again - and best wishes to your mum - I have lots of photos of your mum and dad from various functions we went to, or chilled out at the beach etc.
I remember the day your dad bought the newspaper and opened it to discover your cousin Joanne on Page 3 !!

Hi noreen, i bet those photos are worth a look!! Was it victor beach you all went to cos i remember going there with sam and frank jory and a few others which quite possibly could have been you? Do you recall the moment my mother drove the car through the fence and onto the beach? (trying to teach my sister to drive and probably had a few glasses of st pantalemon!!!)
