bushtick

Had two weeks hols after Falcon, then joined the BSAP for a 2-year contract; did Police Display, horse escorts & a posting to Inyanga (hardship huh!), then bought myself out in June '81. Moved to UK a month later, did a course in advertising and marketing, then got a job with a small ad agency in Wimbledon before moving to my current job with Grass Roots Group, where I design processes for motivation websites. Home life = wife Nicola + 4 daughters & 2 sons; also help out at my local lifeboat station, and am keen on photography (www.flickr.com/photos/bushtick), singing with a chamber choir and a bit on the side for the Falcon Old Boys.
