Mont­go­mary Brett was an Offi­cer Com­man­der in the 2 Bataljon Parashoot Brigade and the 44 Para­chute Brigade and a very close friend of Dave ever since. A leg­end and a true gentleman.

We were very happy to have the com­pany of Zulu speak­ing Bushy McK­elvey, holder of the world record for the great­est dis­tance on a motor­bike in 24 hours by an indi­vid­ual, cov­er­ing an incred­i­ble 3 257.5km on a motor­bike in 24 hours.

We were all a lit­tle bit tired by the time we got to Not­ting­ham Road but a del­cious sup­per and soft bed awaited us.
