My daughter just come across your association I didn't know anything about it.

My Daughter is an active member of the RBL Riders and is trying to help me locate my pal Ron Attwell who I served with in 1952 to 1954. I was a regular he came in as national service. I was in the RAOC army number 22819455 Private Kenneth Jordan. We both served in Egypt but I haven't seen him since around 1956/1957. He lived in Hackney at the time. I will be 83 in January and I really would love to see him again, if he is still with us.

My daughter will print off the membership form and return it with payment in full for me.

If there is anything yourselves can do to help, it would mean so much to me. Or if you are able to point us in the right direction. With data protection which is a good thing, it is not easy I find to try and locate someone.

I fully understand if you are able to locate him, that it would be up to him, if he would like to get in touch.

I now live in Port Isaac in Cornwall, but originally from Small Heath in Birmingham.

We were both drivers in Egypt. I look forward to hearing from you. Best wishes Ken (the email address is my daughters email address)

Hello Ken
I’m pleased to see that you, and your daughter, have found the Suez Veterans Association at last.
I have checked the lists of current and past members and didn’t find the name of Ron Attwell so I regret I can’t help you with any details about him. Have you tried contacting the RAOC Association? They should have one.
Looking forward to receiving your membership application, I will get it processed and sent back to you as soon as I can.
Wishing you and your daughter all the best for a good Christmas.
Richard Woolley.
SVA Membership Secretary.

Best wishes
