|In touch again after 60
years, John Lear and Ian Templeton served in the RAF as
wireless operators. John Lear recently sent us an email
"In 1951 whilst serving in
the R.A.F. in Malaya my close friend and working colleague
was a son of Maybole. I recently re-discovered his address
which he wrote in a book I was reading at the time. A great
mate, six foot two and proudly Scottish.......I was only six
feet tall! His name is Ian Templeton and address at that
time was Vicarlands, Maybole. I would love to hear from him
if he is still living in Maybole"
few inquiries we located Ian who is still living in Ayrshire
and have given John his address. John's response...
"Thank you so much for
all your efforts on my behalf. I am so glad to know that Ian
is thriving and would welcome a letter from me. I will be
writing to him and bringing him up-to-date on my travels
since 1951! "
