I was just browsing, looking for any information that I could find on my uncle -

22462292 Warrant Officer Class 2 John Francis Lonergan, SSM of Scotland-based 300 Parachute Squadron, 131 Parachute Engineer Regiment, who was killed in action at Al Milah in Radfan.

I was 13 when he died, but I have such fond memories of him. He was such a part of my young life. Never forgotten!

By the time I got to Aden many of the units referred here had gone and Khormaksar was getting smaller by the day. Ran the comms link to Fearless for a while and was on the 2nd last Hercules out. Anyone remember the special film show late October \'67- \"Khartoum\".

Heads-up everyone. BBC 1 Television Sunday 1st October at 2100hrs. A new 6 Part Drama Series \"The Last Post\". Set in Aden in the 1960\'s it is based around an RMP Unit and was written by Peter Moffat whose Dad served in Aden as an RMP Officer. The trailer looks very good and I hope the series will also alert today\'s generation of the sacrifices made by our Armed Forces all those years ago, as well as the Families who lived and worked there.

Stay safe and be lucky.
Johnboy

Since its coming up for the 50th anniversary of Britains ma`asalamah to Aden I wonder if anyone came across the Keith Falconer Mission Hospital at Sheik Othman which was run by DR Brian Drever of Helensburgh,DR Macphail of Lewis and others.I belonged to the Church of the Rock at Steamer Point which was PMUB and since the KF Hospital came under the Church of Scotland we used to go there to help out and what a job they had !!! The only hospital for the Arabs in Aden I believe. anyone out the that had dealings with the place I would like to hear about .CCC

searching for a soldier

Please enter your comments?  

In 1965 I met a young soldier at Gatwick Airport. He was leaving for Aden. We had a few hours to spare and so we talked. We corresponded for some months but by letters were intercepted by my parents. The last one that I received was when I was in the hospital with a bone tumour in my leg. In his letter he told me that he had been wounded in the leg. My parents would not allow me to correspond further as I was 17 years of age. I only know that he was stationed near London and that his name is Tony and he was wounded in 1966. Any help in finding Tony would be greatly appreciated. I have thought about him throughout the years and wondered how his life continued. My dad was in the military at the time when I met Tony.

Sincerely

Anne (Cuthbert) Kelly

Hello
I\'m trying to find information on my dad,he died three years ago.He was a rifleman in raf regiment in Aden in (I think) the early 1950\'s.
He was 18-19 years old and was born 03.03.1933.
All I have is his regiment badge which shows two crossed rifles and says 55 squadron Royal Air Force regiment.If anyone could give me any info or pointers I would be grateful,thank you so much.
I\'m confused because every time I try and find info the only badge is one arm holding a spear.
His name was Dennis Leslie Thomas Holman ,always known as Den unless he was in trouble !,I have photos but no other info,other than he lost his best mate out there whose name was Jonah,I only add that because it\'s an unusual name.Thank you x
