I can't believe I'm typing the fact, that 40 years ago today, I left home (at the tender age of 17) and went off to join the Royal Air Force.
31 October 1983. Youth Training Scheme number 2. Royal Air Force Hereford.
I got on the train at Liverpool Lime Street station, headed for Hereford. The only thing I knew was, I had to change at Crewe and I'd be met at Hereford station.
