Over the years I travelled to rescues by the usual methods land rovers and in the back of a 4 tonner. Later it became helicopters.
In the Desert Rescue it was by Andover aircraft with drops into the desert.
Later on we went on a big search from Wales via Hercules for a Jaguar aircraft.
In the past I also travelled with keepers across lochs in various boats for remote searches.
The Lifeboat helped on several rescues in Skye and we had a rib for years that was invaluable.
Looking back what a crazy times. But what memories.
From Al Haveron – Dreish was more than happy to lie on a seat travelling up to Prestwick in the Herc. Job done, rules are rules she had to be in cage to travel back. Heavy had to go to the butcher at RAF Kinloss to get a bone to tempt her into the cage.
