My Dad Glyn Parry served in Aden around 61/62/63, he was in the 17/21st Lancers. Can someone tell me if the govt decided that those who served in Aden were awarded campaign medals? Dad joined the boys army before going to his regiment. He is 84 now and has dementia. I feel so sad that on rememberance day he has no medals despite what he went through in Aden.

Research

I am researching a project involving National Service and would be interested to speak or make contact with any National Servicemen, in particular those who served in Aden or Korea, but the experiences of all National Servicemen would be regarded with great interest. I have no political views on the merits or demerits of National Service, or its restoration; my wish is to represent as accurately as possible the experience of men too young to be called up for WW2 but whose lives were interrupted, disrupted, improved, not improved, by National Service.

I went to RAF Khormaksar School 1963/64. My father served at RAF Khormaksar as an armourer. He was known as Bill Bailey and was a Warrant Officer at the time. I used to enjoy looking at the Hunters and remember seeing the \'gun packs\' being rearmed. I served in the Australian Regular Army.

Going through some of Dad\'s old photo\'s and there are some of the lads he served with. Was trying to trace some of the others on the photos (or their descendants) to see if they wanted copies of the photos. Dad has made it hard work though as the names on the back are first names or nicknames (eg Hatto, Sween, Dia). The only full name I have is Johny Hiscocks, on the back of a photo of him and Dad having a beer on board the Nevassa as they depart Aden.
Unfortunately I can\'t get more details as Dad passed away a couple of years ago.

All died on this day in 1963 when their \'Up Country\' expedition, led by Major Omerod from Fort Morbut, inadvertently strayed into the Yemen and they were shot by Yemeni Tribesmen. A very sad day

My dad, Russ Scarlett (22242816) served in Aden in the mid-sixties. My mum is moving house and gave me some photos of my dad in Aden which I\'d not seen before, as well as a group phot of 927 M.T. Company, RASC (TA). (I can\'t actually see my dad in the photo but can\'t imagine why she\'d have it if he\'s not there.) I tried to do a bit of research and came up with the Aden Vets website. My dad died in 1992 so he\'s not around to ask. Thanks.

Most of Aden veterans must be in their 70s by now. I have noticed that on Remembrance Sunday when a list of post WW11 conflicts are mentioned in church or cathedrals, Aden is never mentioned. This really annoys me as we seem to be forgotten.

My Fathers name was David Butchard McDougall. Born 1929 served in Aden with the Hussars for many years.

Sadly he died in 1976 at the age of 47. Don\'t have much information about him, would be interested in anything anyone knows.

Thanks

Found a large box of 35mm Kodachrome slides from Aden take during \'64 through \'66 I think. My Dad was in the RAMC and these were his slides. I hope that you find them of interest. There are some family items here, but am sure you will find your way around. If anyone has any details of the scenes involved, then I would be pleased to hear from you.
Dad was Kenneth Geoffrey Hine and I know that he spent time in the Radfan and Ad Dimnah.

Thanks, Kenneth Richard Hine (son)
