    Anyone on the board signed it? I had to sign it before taking up my job last summer working in the Officers Mess on RAF Cottesmore. It was for a job cleaning rooms, serving food, bar work etc.

    yea, I had to sign something like that when I did volunteering at a police station for a few months. There wasn't anything I could really find out though.

    Tell you what Dani, do a summer job for civilian contractors on a RAF base, sign the Official Secrets Act, and then you will be allowed to see your dad's diaries perfectly legally.

    LOL I know what you mean. The only thing of semi-interest I came across, which I must confess I did flick through, was a folder marked secret which was in the bin of an officer who had just moved out.

    I love my dad... he always tells me wonderful/scary snippets about RAF goings on (he is an RAF Wing Commander). He knows he shouldn't, but equally he knows I'm no Claire Short.

    Yea based on Cottesmore. Used to live at Hendon though!

    LOL my dad hasn't told me about people who have died/been murdered. But he did point out the US and the UK chief spies when we lived in Riyadh. And he did enlighten me regards some funny business regards the RAF in Iraq this time round.
