I'm a proud Dad (again) ....

... and I don't care who knows!

My younger daughter has just achieved a BSc 2:1 in Sociology and I'm absolutely overcome with fatherly pride.

And I posted a similar thread 3 years again when elder daughter also achieved a 2:1. ;-))

Many congratulations to her and to you!!!

C is G. Congratulations to your daughters. (both of them) It is a hard slog to achieve that.

But when I read the heading I thought you were handing out cigars, having become a father again.

Me too - thought you might be a tad past it, though!

I am not a Dad ..my best friend Brian is ( he's got 2 grown-up daughters) one is a teacher, the other is finishing university with top marks ..so I can feel your elation. Clapton is God...great news.HB

As a father of four children who have all achieved university degrees I understand your feeling of great pride. I congratulate you and your two wonderful children.

In my case I have always wondered where my kids got their intelligence from, because I was just a simple rigger in the RAF and for sure, they didn't get it from me!!!

ams4127 'simple riggers' were the guys that kept my aircraft flyable under very difficult circumstances at times!

Well done indeed!

Overcome with pride? I know that feeling well - my congratulations to your daughter; I wish her well with whatever she decides to do in the future.

onthelimit1. You were one of the lucky ones!! Were you on Lightnings, Jaguars, Victors or Hawks? Those are the ones on which I did 2nd line work. Many, many others at 1st line. Happy days indeed.
