Full Tour Crews

Postby ChrisInBlackpool » Wed Apr 25, 2012 10:05 pm

Ok here is a list of some of the ones we have already:
Not in any particular order... of some one wants to start making up a word doc with all this on please do just post to this thread letting us all know...

Ohh one thing... as we all know crews had people go sick etc etc.. so dont worry if say 15 out of 20 where with the same seven guys.. that will do.. or if say the same crew had 6 the same all the time but reg had a different AG or WOp... the idea is just to get a feel for crews that stuck together..

Hi Chris,
Hope this doesn't confuse the issue but I'm re-posting here the 5/6 crews that I have done so far. Reason is that I already know of one slight error which I've now corrected plus I've added more info (ranks, initials etc) from the "Suicide" book excerpts you emailed me today. By having them on my own post I can edit them to make any further adjustments necessary before they are finally transferred by you to the new "Full Tour Crews" page.
Here are the updated entries for Full Tour Crews 1 to 5:
