In 1954 I was drafted into the Royal Signals, and did my trade training as a wireless op: at Richmond.

The Camp was at Gallowgate just outside Richmond on the top of the highest hill. To say it was wind swept would be a misunderstanding, and the barrack rooms were pathetic.

The floors were bare unfinished concrete that turned to dust when you walked on them, the windows were ill fitting and some of the roofs leaked. Consequently when it rained, which it did very very often ones kit and bedding got quite damp at times.

Word had it that the builder of the camp was in gaol for fraud on the government for shoddy construction. In all it's wisdom of course the powers that be never fixed the problems...

Oh what a joy that place was, although in fairness the wireless op: training was very good.

The "lost password / amend email address" form does exactly what it says on the tin.

It uses your security question answer to verify that you are the owner of the Service No or User ID whose password and/or email is being changed.

But it doesn't update the security question.

Can't you change PW/car reg etc at the "lost password" page?

Mike Graham here Norman. I've taken over looking after the site since Brian's "retirement".

As far as I can see there isn't a direct option for changing the security question (e.g. car reg).

I suppose this makes sense in that how do you check that the person doing the change is kosher, unless they know the answer to the security question?

Does that make any sense
