Happy New Year - It's close to 1 year since my last posting: NOBODY DID IT BETTER THAN ME! - I popped a HYMAN in the Dean's hotel and then got laid in the barracks by a beautiful English girl. I also got to Europe for two weeks on a 3 day religious retreat in Berchesgarten Germany.

I seved there for 15 months in 68-69. I travelled all over Pakistan including Swat and Gilgit. I learned to barter very well in old city , rode in a really good tonga owned by "john" who let me drive it thru those hairy streets all the time. Loved curried chicken and nan bread and rice. Still have shishum wood camels and brassware from there. Saw a Russian black bomber scrape the treetops on the base on a photorecon thru Afghanistan, I suppose. The pilot waved at me and I stood there in shock. Had a tribesman wave his riffle at me in Peshawar market place while taking his photo from the tonga at "Johns" urging. He laffed at the tribesman and whipped the horse to speed out of there. Swat and Gilgit were unbelievable beauty. Rode a jeep thru Gilgit on a dangerous Mountain jeep road that dropped thousands of feet stright down. Went up to Lake Phander. Have hundreds of photos of all this. Worked for Spinstra not USAFSS.

My hometown is Peshawar I was student of Islamia college Peshawar in 1960-63. Before the Swimming Pool was constructed families from Badaber came on weekends to swim in Peshawar Club. It was here that I met Col Julius Spooner and family. My late father was Maj Gen serving in East Pakistan now Bangladesh in 1960-61. I was invited for lunch and told I could catch the base bus from Deans hotel. The swimming pool was under constrction, tried my hand with bowling and stumbled at 17 felt very sheepish.Susan Spooner the Col pretty daughter encouraged me to bowl again and be steady I did get a few pins. I remember all visitors to PAF base Peshawar was closed from April 26 and as member of Shaheen Air Scouts couldn't fly the Gliders till after May 5, 1960. Today at 79 I have to explain to others born in late 70s and later the U-2 didn't take off from Badaber and it's not a bomber but a high altitude recconaisance plane that can glide silently to pick and transmit soundwaves. I wish all members and their families ''Stay Safe and Blessed.''

Best Regards

My father, Captain Arthur H. Anderson at the time, was stationed at Peshawar from'61 to '64. I was just a small boy at the time, but I can still remember the base, and the locals who helped around our house (Sadan). My Dad retired in 1978 as an O-5 and passed away in Jan 2020 at 91 YOA. I also served 20 years in the Air Force, retiring as an O-5 in 2002.

I was assigned to Peshawar TWICE, but my second tour was cut short. Thanks to being accepted to the Airman, Education, and Commissioning Program (AECP), my second tour was only about six months long.

Had been listed on your organization under my wife, Dianne Brinda. I have no idea how that happened. Trying to correct. Had been listed by Harry Hawthorn in five years ago.
