Re: Memories

Hi Jim,

Yes they were a great lot of people, to think of the conditions out there, they were made of hardy stock and voluntary too, I was semi voluntary a regular but if choice was mine I would have picked a better place, although my three years did me no harm, just got a great tan, which I get told off for when going to hospitals, not looking after my skin, but after explaining, get let off, my daughter had a holiday in Cyprus and took the trip to see the Pyramids and she said she did not know how we stood it, but it was people like those in Sally Anns, TheJocks, MMGs that helped us carry on, NAAFI did help with their Rest Centres for a weeks Leave, but we relied on Regimental Canteens.

Cheers Rod
