Singapore and Malaya 29.8.70 - 5.4.71

Thought it was about time I took part rather than just observe others posts and put some of my photo's up on this great site. I have been dropping in on occasions and really enjoyed the memories stirred of my fairly short but very proud time serving with the regiment.

I recall spending many a happy time here on a Wednesday listening to such great hits as 'All on the right side of Montego Bay'!
