First Hibs match I think it was against Clyde at Shawfield around 1975.
First trip to Easter Road was in the League Cup v Rangers again around 1975, (1-1 maybe)
How long a member of London Hibs Since 1994 
How did you find out about London Hibs From my brother David who is also a member
Favourite all time Hibs Player Difficult to chose one. Enjoyed watching John Collins, Steve Archibald and dare I say it Darren Jackson
Most memorable Game Again a difficult one most likely 4-4 with Celtic in the League Cup (1986?), the 2 games in Belgium and the League Cup final in 1991
How often do you get to games Usually around 6-8 a season
When did you leave Scotland? (If applicable) April 1994
Why do you live in the South? I work here
Favourite English team I always look out for the Watford result because I live there
Lowest moment following Hibs? Being relegated
Best Hibs goal? Joe McBride (Jnr) v Hearts at Tynecastle, direct from a free kick.
What is the best thing about being a Hibby? The clubs history and the supporters
Proudest moment following Hibs? Seeing the thousands of supporters at Hampden for the League Cup final in 1991, and the sing-song with the Liege fans after the away leg when nobody wanted to leave the ground and with  Belgian riot police wearing Hibs scarves watching on in disbelief
How did you become a Hibby? Definitely a family thing
