Good news about your National Service Down Memory Lane article.
I joined the Royal Navy as a regular at HMS Raleigh, Cornwall, in 1958 with what I believe may have been the last RN National Servicemen.
Great memories of a lovely bunch of fellas.
One of my projects has been the initiation of a local internet group for ex-service man, be they National Service or regulars. We already have a number of ex-National Servicemen in the group.
All those who live around the Chichester area and beyond are more than welcome to join the Chichester Combined Armed Forces group at http://dir.groups.yahoo.com/group/JointServiceSelsey/ where they can record memories with fellow ex-Armed Service personnel as well as recounting the stories they have in your letters pages.
Even if they do not wish to join our group they can surf the many links to Armed Service groups on the home page.
