I am writing the military life history of an Air Force Officer who served at RAF Khormaksar from January 1964 until February 1966 for his family. His name was F/Lt Jan Walentowicz and he worked in UKMAMS or possibly Air Traffic Control. I have covered his 32 year career but there is a significant gap during his time in Aden. If you can help please contact me on neville.bougourd@yahoo.com

I was in Aden as a civilian working for P. & O. in 1949 and 1950. I had many good friends in the RAF and was made an honorary member of the officers mess at Steamer Point. I was the third member of my family to be in Aden. My uncle, Trenchard Fowle, was Assistant Resident form 1925 to 1928 and his father was Ordnance Officer in charge of the Aden Arsenal in 1889.

Did a 5 month emergency detached duty part at Khormaksa on air movements the remainder on security at Steamer Point in 1965. Returned in 1966 on a one year tour working on security and customs at Aden Civil Airport. Finished my tour in 1967 on the day of the floods. Thought we would not get home but fortunately we made it off near midnight.

I\'ve been looking through the postings but can\'t find any from other WRAC and only a couple from the Pay Corps. Where are they all? I was in Aden from Nov 65 to May 67 and would like to hear from any of the other girls who were there at that time especially Sue McWilliams. I used to talk to a chap in hospital when I was on guard duty and often wonder how he is. His name was Michael Bryant but I don\'t know which regiment or corps he was with

I was posted to Aden in October \'56 during the Suez Crisis (at 3 days notice!). The detachment of all B1 Tradesmen (I was a Clerk Technical) were to act on setting up the stores for 1 Div when things hotted up. Of course they didn\'t and we were forgotten men. I worked in the PSCO at 114 MU, living in RAF billets, eating their food and doing their (very light ) duties. We had no promotion but we got paid and it was a pleasant working environment so we didn\'t moan, life at Singapore lines was much rougher all round, I understood. The best part of the time there was the fortnight\'s leave in Kenya which I really enjoyed. I got a good camera, watch etc from the duty free shops so I shouldn\'t grumble. Memories of Xmas and the cocktails drunk out of the pint pots we drank our tea from. I was demobbed in Feb 58 having been sent home three weeks earlier - less said about Blackdown in winter avoiding fatigues the better.

Jan 1961 sailed to Aden on HMT Dunera with the KOSB\'s. Billetted at Khormaksar in Block3 Middle East (most of ATC were in air conditioned Block 117) Served up country including Kuwait (The first Iraq war?) during my 2 year stint. Was a volunteer at the Aden Forces Broadcasting Association, next to the RAFP Dog Compound, as a presenter, controller and record librarian before and after the BFBS started transmitting in Aden. Lived ultimately on Khormasker Beach. My first daughter, Karen, was born in Steamer Point Hospital in October 1962.
Happy memories - Elephant Bay, St Paulii Girl beer in a bar at Steamer point which was better than \'Slops\' or Tennants. C rater, Shamsan, Maala, Shenaz Roundabout, Little Aden.
