RAF White Waltham, in 2010 written by Tony Whittle
The saddest day of my service was when my good mate Terry Hook was killed in a motorcycle accident . Terry was doing a swap shift for me while I was playing rugby in Jersey in Dec 1961. That Saturday evening there was a bad storm and a tree fell across the road killing Terry.The first I knew of it was reading the front page of the Daily Express in the Jersey Airport,there was also a photo of him. Imagine how I felt seeing that. I have never really got over it and never will.Terry was only about 18 or so and loved the RAF POLICE.It must have felt like that in wartime when so many fine young men were just snubbed out in their prime of life.Why did that tree fall just at that second Terry was driving to the Station to do my shift? Sods Law. I cant explain how sick I feel to this day.

There is nothing worse than breaking down. But if you do, the RAC have more than 1,500 patrols ready to rescue you, whether you are at the shops or on the motorway. They will always try to fix your vehicle at the roadside, but if they cant they will make getting it repaired as painless as possible.
