Thank you dancer.  Retired nearly two years ago and looking after no 1.  Loved my last work but because of Marians condition I had to retire.  Miss my many friends who worked there.
 
There are very few of the olde staff left.  When you look at the photo outside the depot there are only two left.  Frightening!

Do you know if J D is still in controls? Met Daphnie one day before Christmas at Forestside, she did tell me that she had been speaking to you a few times, don't know if she has seen you since, to pass on my regards.  Dancer

Forgive me for asking, but who is "the hat"?

'The Hat' always wore his hat and he worked in the Ambulance Service.  No, he was not and still is, not bald.  Got the name for obvious reasons.  I am delighted to have him as a friend.   :)

We'd have to kill you if we gave you his name.

Yes he sure is one in a million.  It was also his handle on the CB radio. He was one of the best.

A couple more I just came across.  These were taken at the Sean Graham bookmakers massacre in 1992.

Yep.  In later shots, someone has given him a tabard.

There's a video of the incident on the UTV website.  Iif you Google Sean Graham Bookmakers massacre, you'll find it.  I found it fascinating for reasons you'll understand Rathlin.
