Join us on our travels around Europe aboard our Dutch Tjalk Francoise

    After 6 years aboard our Narrowboat Matilda Rose in the UK, we took the plunge and shipped her across to Europe. After 2 years in Europe we knew we didn't want to return to the UK so took the plunge and purchased a 1902 20 mtr Dutch Tjalk called Francoise and are now continuing our travels of the waterways of Europe in a buxom wench

    Hi Jill/Graham,

    We are planning to retire and move our liveaboard widebeam to France spring of next year and found your blog which is great. I’ll have done nearly 30 years in the RAF when I retire and looking at the photo wondered if either/both of you were also in the Air Force previously?

    Kind regards

    • Hi Phil,
      Firstly I must apologise, but I have only just found your comment on the above photo, how I missed it I do not know.
      Secondly, yes I did serve in the Royal Air Force, I was an ALM, served on 33sqn, 230sqn both as a crewman mid 70s to mid 80s and lastly on 216sqn as Loadmaster mid 80s to 1990 when I was medically retired.
      regards

    Hi Graham,

    No worries at all. I was multis as well from 1989 – 2002 but I’m sure we’ll have some mutual friends as I knew quite a few folk on 216 Sqn.

    Kind regards

    Phil
