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

Hello. I\'m looking to find anyone who was possibly caught up in the cinema grenade attack in Beihan in Apr 1966. I believe my uncle, Peter Simpson, may have been involved, and I would like to find out more information. Unfortunately my uncle now has dementia so is unable to give more details. I think he may have been in a Royal Artillery Unit.

Thank you

Whilst In Aden we were at Musamyr, Habilayn and left up country during the withdrawal as the last Artillery in those two Places. Spent all my time up there apart from a short 48hr stint relieving some guys on Mansura prison before flying back up country.

My mother, Eleanor Mary Grunnah, was in the Princess Mary Nursing Service and served in Aden 1937 - 1939. My father, Michael Rackstraw, who was in the RNVR was also there from about 1937 on several duties and by the time he left in, I believe about 1954 was the Harbour Master.
I realise this is many years ago now but would be fascinated if anyone knew about them, please

Hi, I am trying to gather details about my mother in law’s father, just for ancestry records. We do not even know if we have the correct name. My mother in law says his name is or could be Colin Wright. He was stationed with his family in Aden in the 60s. His wife was German and they had 3 boys. We also know he was stationed in Osnabruck, Germany, and possibly before around 1954 somewhere close to Bremen as my mother in law was born in August 1955 in Bremen. This is all we know, I also have a photo of him with this 3 boys at Osnabruck Zoo. And that he and wiltrud were divorced later at some point. Would love to know if someone actually remembers his name of what regiment he was in.
Thank you for your service.

Aden was an eye opener, dhala was back in the middle ages,savage but beutiful country and people, but it was good to be actually doing the job we trained for instead of endless exercises. Sadly we lost a lot of comrades for what turned out to be a waste of time and effort due to political ineptitude.
i would imagine that a poll of the locals now would see a huge majority asking to be back under British Rule/supervision
