UK owned Huey Reunites Veterans


Recommended Posts

Crickey that was back in 2007 and I still remember it like it was yesterday. Still in touch with the guys on a regular basis and have met up with them in the States a few times.


We still get Vieterans coming to see us, not just from the 129th, but from all kinds of units. Last weekend we reunited two veterans with Huey 509 and the Loach. John Nixon (in blue) served with the 25th Infantry and other units over a four year service. He now lives in Southport. John Kelly (in red) was with the 101st in 68. He was on holiday over here as his wife originally came from Preston, so they were over to visit family and be in the city for the Guild celebrations. A fascinating day with the two talking about their experiences and the places they had been as their AO was same but not at the same time, now that would have been an even bigger coincidence.


Loach departed first to display at Southport which gave the guys a little more time to themselves with the Huey and their thoughts.
