In my opinion the marriage residence is not always the place of birth. Never forget Workhouse and overseers accounts records of birth

I like it...it has a bit of a surreal look, and it must have been a bit of a surreal time.

Roy
GUIDE FOR PHOTO RESTORATIONS PLEASE MAKE SURE YOUR SCANNER BED IS CLEAN AND SCAN AT A RESOLUTION OF 300-600 WITH THE SCALE AT 100% MINIMUM.

If you would like a coloured version, details such as hair colour , eyes and clothing etc.  if known  would be helpful to restorers

Regards Roy

Ahhh  Royal Anglians...  ;D

Have you seen/read the book "Crater To the Creggan"

http://www.britains-smallwars.com/Aden/Creggan.htm

It includes an account of April 1967
One more charge and then be dumb,
            When the forts of Folly fall,
        May the victors when they come
            Find my body near the wall.

Thank you very much all of you ;D

Exactly what I wanted.

Yes China, it was a surreal time.. but what we joined up for.  It is very difficult to fight with your hands tied. Politics can be a terrible thing to servicemen.

Scrimnet Royal Anglians, The Lancashire Fusiliers, and Mad Mitch. I preferred the protection of Ferrets, Saracens and Saladins, even though the odd wheel would be blown off by IEDs

Thank you again
Mark ;)
