I left the Association a couple of years ago. It was too hard to update the membership each year from overseas. I enjoyed seeing the old black/white videos of the old place. I was in the old camel stables up Chapel Hill for a while then had the pleasure of moving down to the air conditioned blocks near the helicopter pan. Luxury! LOL. The website is good and a nice place to catch up with the news.
All the best to fellow veterans. Cheers.

Hi there, My Father Reginald Charles Perham (known as \"Charlie\") served in Aden from 22nd June 1965 to 16th June 1967 firstly with the RASC and then with the RCT. I have some photos of him in Aden with the trucks and playing football. Unfortunately he passed away in 1979 when I was a baby so i dont know too much only whats in his service record book. His army no was 23842487. He left the army on 22nd June 1973. I would love to learn more about his time there and if anyone remembers him. Also happy to share the photos if they are wanted. Thanks Hayley xx

Hello.

My father served in Aden in the late 1960\'s. His name was Bernard Lewis.

He also went to Germany and Canada.

Sadly he died in 2005. I was wondering if anyone here knew him and if anyone has any photos of him?

Thank you
