I also had an involvement with the UK Scout Associations web site Scoutbase.
In past years I have become involved with a number of Explorer Belt Expeditions to Europe and a number of International camps in Scoutland - The Blair Atholl Jamborette as well as a number of other events in the UK.
As of July 2010, I have retired from my a full time job.
Since 1970 I have work with a local Aircraft Manufacturing Company where I reached the ranks of Manufacturing Engineering Manager until the closure of the plant in March 1998.
As of April 1998 I worked for another Company maintaining aircraft maintenance manuals - still based in Prestwick, the Company under contract to provide authors to BAe Systems.
In September 2000, I had the opportunity to take employment again with BAE Systems, within the Technical Publications Department where I had previously been sub-contracting.
Now a man of Leisure - but no doubt someone will find me something else to do....
