      Hello Everyone,

      I was lucky enough to be posted from Wagga to Richmond in September 1991, just a mere 15 months before the Squadron moved to Amberley. I started out in the Instruments workshop and pestered Gary Glover to move to the Flight Line side until at the end of the year he agreed to let me start there in January. In the meantime I enjoyed learning the ins and outs of Instruments R1’s on a Caribou in the Graveyard outside Hanger 1. About 0830 the sun has warmed the cockpit enough for us to go down there and wipe the gauges, change the dessicant in the gyro, sign up the Instruments R1 and go to smoko. Different story on the other side of the hanger…

      Richmond 38 SQN would still have to have been my favourite posting.

      Does anyone else have stories from Hanger 1 or 2?
