A reunion for

Sunday 9th September 2007
Baker Troop 45 Commando Royal Marines (1955-57)

Would that not be Bravo or was it Baker in them there days??? I know our friends used to call it Baker until NATO was formed.

It looks a fine memorial for those that have fallen. Have to pay it a visit sometime.

BBC1 will be showing an hour long documentary "In loving memory" on the 4th of November 2007. This will show the Memorial and some short clips/interviews with people affected by events or the loss of loved ones, whilst serving in the Armed Forces.

Of interest to the Submariners in particular will be a interview with a Sidon survivour and Gill Dash whose Father Surg Lt. Rhodes died trying to rescue people from the Sidon. He was awarded the Albert Medal for his actions, a medal which Gill still possess
