When A Sqn went to Cyprus in 67 Roy Mills was the Qm boots and socks. Major Henderson was Sqn Leader and Bill George Ssm. I was attached to C Sqn in Aden. We were in Kuwait for the first Gulf Fiasco in 1961. Paddy Kelly was RSM. He was a really good bloke. I was his driver for a time. Initially in a Mk2 Ferret and then on an American 1 ton tipper and then onto a Humber pickup. I also drove a Centurion for a time. Memories come flooding back. What a joy to be a member of this wonderful website.
