I've been researching various veteran's histories from Air Force from the 1950s Base on records, a veteran was mysteriously discharged from the HQ 6950th RAGGRUMO British Isles (USAFSS) on November 24, 1958.
He was then just as mysteriously 're-enlisted' right back in the same squadron the very next day of November 25, 1958 as both of these entries indicate Chicksands, England Air Force base.
Worked with some good people, Tom Gillespie, Spicer, Snell, Kulick, and some greaat people. Richmond (1/11/16) The Richmond family lived in The Priory 1950-1952. [email protected] (31/10/16) hi i dont know if you remember me,i used to work in the snack bar on the hill and the small one down the bottom.i really enjoyed it . Spent a lot of time at the club on the foosball table. I remember riding to work with a guy whose name I can no longer remember, but he drove a white 68 or 69 GTO. Of course most of my time at Chicksands I was hitting the annex, then after it was converted to a cafeteria either the NCO or Rod & Gun Club.
Can anyone out there with insight on records from Chicksands and that time period and with better sources determine what SDN-903 may represent?Please write me with any suggestions and thanks for the correspondence I've had from some of you.Fran Haynes (she dated Budgie), Mary (can't recall her last name).

[email protected] Winslet (4/8/16) My mum Ida Winslet later to be Theobald was seeing an serviceman at Chicksands during the year 1956, she was 16 at the time.
Chicksands was such a fun place, the Rod and Gun was a place to throw darts. She became pregnant and had me, I do not think she told the serviceman about me, but she died not telling me who my father was. Would like to know my background and who my father was. Please write me Would like the most to hear from someone that served at both bases and remembers other that did.

Base on reading some people's inquiries on their own military records, the number itself seems to be quite an 'unknown' on many records like it's some type of hidden code number system within the military.
