    Default Hallo from South Queensferry

    hallo peeps!. Am Stephen Murray ( stevie or weegie to friends ) currently residing in South Queensferry not far from the old Port Edgar naval base. Originally from Glasgow and served with 603 squadron in Edinburgh but now in process of re-enlisting with 612 at Leuchars. Avid interest in aviation particularly WW2 but have a fear of flying!. Also worked at East Fortune Museum for a while.

    Welcome to the forum and may I say I really enjoyed listening to you on the wireless in the Navy Lark

    Like I said it had a silver tip but I can remember it being very corroded blue and I was about 7 yrs old . It was bigger than 303 , what size difference is 50 cal to 20mm ? I intend to go back to said field with a metal detector . ( I'm not holding my breath though because when I found the bullet was 39 yrs ago ).

    Cheers guys! am enjoying browsing the forums, and finding out some more about the airfields of the UK especially around here. I remember ( going back a good few years when I worked for Strathclyde Regional Council ) taking the kids I looked after up to what was the old RAF Bishopbriggs site to a golf driving range. The 'road' was pretty wide and still retained what i thought was initially runway markings but obviously not.

    Welcome Daz, Watton isn't too far from me and still has alot of interesting things to look at if you spend some time digging around. The thread on Watton on AiX is a really interesting read as well. I look forwaard to seeing your posts on the forum.
