Geoff Foley, Dave Steele and Tony Viegas Reunion

Photo taken by Geoff Foley of Dave Steele and Tony Viegas.

Dave Steele and Tony Viegas

Dave was in South Africa, from Australia, on a business trip in
March 2010

The 3 of us were all radio techs. Dave and I spent some time in the
IS (Internal Security) Hangar at New Sarum where we became
rather good friends.

I had not seen Dave or Geoff for close to 35 years.
When we met it was as if it had been only a mere number of weeks
that had passed.

Other than the 3 of us getting a bit grey, not much else has changed.

Comment by ORAFs
Tony Viegas was 30 LAR (Local Area Recruit) Dave Steele from 27 LAR)
and Geoff Foley being 32 LAR

Thanks to Tony for sharing his memories with ORAFs.
