Operation Crown 1963 - 1968

About Me

Just a little about me. Joined up in the Army Apprentice School Arborfield in 1963 (63C) B coy. Nick name ( I think we all had one) Stumpy!! Could be something to do with my height.

First posting was to British North Borneo, Kuching with the 99 Brigade of Gurkhas LAD REME. Discovered I was really partial to Tiger beer. End of confrontation (28 days after I got there, thus no medal) saw us shipping out to Singapore, Nee Soon Barracks. Tiger Beer and night time entertainment became even more appealing.

Volounteered for Thailand, Op Crown..now that was the jewel in the crown as far as postings in the far east were concerened. Talk about roughing it, but what an experience. One I will never forget for many reasons that cant be told here.

UK, Bahrain, Canada, Germany, Northern Ireland and finally UK and into Civvy street.

Now retired and living a life of leisure in sunny Dorset

I wonder if any of you might remember me.
