    hedgehoppers anon

    I was called up in 1960 and sent to Bridgenorth for basic training.
    In our billet was a young lad from the North East called Ray Honeyball.
    He strummed the evenings away on his guitar, He eventually became the bass guitarist in the group Hedgehoppers Anonymous.

    Aircrew? Certainly not.

    Google Ray Honeyball for more info on the group.
