Had a good night last saturday at Broughton, an old face from many years ago appeared through the door in the guise of John "Jacko" Jackson AKA the fighting Postman from Rhyl.a few people havnt seen him for over 26 years and it was nice to see Mark Speakmans face, and Garry Beatties, when jacko tapped them on the shoulder !! I used to go to Wigan with Jacko, and Ritchie "pants" Andrews who also made an appearance - (lovely to see you again mate ),along with Wuffer, Joey Dunlop, to name but a few. I stopped going to wigan in 78 and never saw jacko again until 2AM one morning in 1982 8,000 miles away from home in San Carlos Bay Falkland Islands -we were two hours away from landing on Blue Beach at 0400 hrs Zulu time and the battle for the Falklands was about to commence. I went into the messroom to get a last brew and a bite to eat-the place was packed with Marines all doing the same -having a last bite-when I spied him, big ugly git with a buttie stuffed in his gob Johhnie Jackson !! what the fu*k was he doing here?? We had both left the soul scene and joined up and of all the ships down there me and jacko ended up bumping into each other. (we nearly ended up getting buried together) We both shared a taste of hell together down there, and neither of us will forget it, nor the mates we left behind. Now 20 years on I have hooked up with him again -Jacko lives in bridgwater Somerset- he works for the benefits agency now, and Geoff Hollis is a dog warden down there !!! I am going to cala grand with jacko and geoff and his missus in october so may see some of you there. Hope the Springfield venue is a success, see you all there .
