Like everyone else who has an affection for 40 I think it would be good to get at the truth of this one. I heard the rumours that someone (believed to be JJ) wanted a unit he could trust back at the beach-head because of the threat from an Argentina-based para brigade. Further rumour abounded that t...

Aden Casualty

Working in Southport last week and stopped at the war memorial to read the names, reflect and show some respect for those who gave their lives for our freedom. It is an interesting memorial and covered conflicts from the Boer War, through WW1, WW2, Korea, Cyprus and Aden. The only name under Aden wa...

Many thanks El Prez, Tab, et al. It's good to know, especially in view of the MoS article that has had such air time in this forum. This topic is far more reflective of the corps we know. Not least when you consider the high degree of professionalism shown by our guys (40, 42, 539, 29, 148, 59, etc)...

Rest in peace, Shipmate. We'll splice the mainbrace again when I get up there. The photo of us all in mess kit on the Intrepid remains on my mantle piece. I'll raise a glass tonight.

My deepest sympathy to your lovely family.
