Colin Gibson is looking for Michael (MITCH) Ducket

Last seen: Ripon North Yorkshire 1975

We both did our basic training in Ripon & York, our passing out parade was @ strensal barracks in York. Mitch went on to serve with the KOBs (Kings own border regiment ) while I had joined up with the Green Howards. I had heard via a few third parties that Mitch was involved in some kind of explosion in Northern Ireland but I do not know to what degree. We were best mates & Mitch even visited my home in Rotherham on a few ocasians and absolutely loved my mum's Yorkshire puddings. Mitch lived with his family in Manchester at the time I knew him & I never got to meet them, Hope you are well, Regards Colin
