Hi Ben...
Can you tell us where and when he served, please.
I knew a Jack Parker (at Pudsey I think!) in 1980.
Best regards,

Hi ben,
Not much I can tell you, I'm afraid. I took his place on Green Watch when i was promoted Sub Officer in 1980/81. After handing over, I saw little of him apart from watch changes. I think he went to Blue watch at Pudsey.I don't know the reason he swapped, but Green watch were a good watch. As you say, he was a big lad!

thanks for your help with that, i will have to do some more digging and see what i can find. Funny enough there was a small fire near my house last night called the service and they came made me think what if i carried on the family trade.
