Makes me very proud!
Well done that man!
The Argyle and Sutherlands. Met a few in Aden in 65, mad Mitche's boys. Now they were soldiers :thumright:
My Wifes Great Grandad also fought at Mons.
He got the VC there.
What ship ? I was in The Old Grey Ghost.
First time I'd ever seen a matelot (mobile tri-service patrol) with an smg .. :shock:
(still working on my family tree - but all my ancestors appear to have been jolly jacks)
Eagle, went to Adan a couple of times, real shit hole :toilet:
Should have gotten in with the Crabs - good bars, and good beach if you didn't take notice of the shark nets !!
Had a few good runs down the town though - but I was only 17 and still a baby really.
Aden - same old game, dodgy 'rags' but at least they knew it was but a game. had some wierd rules tho' - practising for today? The dead were still dead mind!! that took the fun out of it!
Aden 1956 - HATED it. 'Nasser good, Nasser good, you wanna buy fountain pen?'
