Great great grandpa was demobbed from the Royal Marines here in 1860something, and the family has been here ever since, apart from a short interlude in 1982 when some folks took a dislike to us. After sticking a gun up our noses and inviting us for a little ride in a helicopter, they booted us out for a couple of months while they wrecked everything and sh@t in the house and car
Fortunately they were put firmly in their place without delay and normal service was resumed shortly after that
Which bit of the forces were you in Paul, and when were you here? Glad to hear you enjoyed it - a lot don't make the effort to get out and see the place but those that do usually seem to. Not a nightclubbers paradise though, I admit
