At Akrotiri, 1961,62,63,64. 32sqdn canberras. Probably the best time of my life. Used to travel all over Cyprus on motorbikes at the time.

Lived in Limassol from July 1968 to July 1974. my Father worked for the the MPBW at Akrotiri.
I attended Campbell for one year moving to St Johns September 1969, I have a brother called Andrew who spent the four years at St Johns. Some of the teachers I remember are Mr Curtis (Metal work), Mr Lowe (PE) Miss Cooper (Science). I rememer traveling by bus to school always hoping the driver would go via the M1 and maybe another bus.
Buttons bay at Akrotiri was a popular visit as were \ladies mile and Govenors. I don't remember names that well but two that come to mins are Mark Triggs and John Sharp.
Great days

My dad was posted here between 87-89 (Dave Wood, 84 Sqn supply). We lived at 20 The Oval, and I remember our Cyprus days fondly. I joined up myself and spent 14 years in blue, serving on 43 Sqn, the Reds and ACES at RAF Lossiemouth. I now work for an energy company. Mum and dad doing ok, would love to hear from anyone that knew me. I was taught by Miss Butt, Mr Way and Mr Brewerton at APS. Best Regards to all.

My father was posted to Episkopi 1969-71 abd we lived at 16 Dorset Drive. Went to Episkopi Primary School but spent most of my free time at the saddle club in Happy Valley. Remember all the beach names as if it was yesterday. Visited about 15 years ago and although now gated little had changed. Friends from those days were Diana and PATRICIA Allen Elizabeth Hearle and Julia Chapman. Best days ever

Hi.
We were based at Episkopi barracks from 2000-2003 and as well as painting several animal Portraits I also painted Happy Valley. I had the painting printed up into over 500 prints which I donated to the WOs and Sgts Mess at Episkopi. I'm sure they sold many as leaving gifts but I never once got a thank you or any offer to compensate me for all the prints I left as we were emergency evacuated back to UK in 2003 due to my daughters I'll health. It would have been nice to know how many prints were taken and if they even appreciated the donation to the Mess. I guess I will never know.
