Re: Memories

Jim, I can understand that, my late wife read a book about a priest in Malta and she asked if we could go there for a holiday, so we had a fortnight out there and we really enjoyed it, the people were friendly and helpful, my wife was in a wheelchair and at bus stops they used to carry the wheelchair on and off the bus for us, I too liked Valleta though rather hilly, the only thing I was not keen on was everybody driving in centre of the road until the last minute, so I realise why the bus drivers had religious icons hanging in the windscreen.

So I to would have had Malta or Cyprus but I did enjoy my time in Malaya although it was a bit hot and sticky.

Like you I was 25 when I returned, I was going to sign on for further service, but girlfriend said she did not want to be an Army wife so came out, she regretted it later when she saw my son and his time in service and his and his wife's married quarters, but that's life.

Cheers Rod
