Served back end of 1958 - 1960 we were based at Little Aden about 15 - 20 mins out of Aden approx. Remember serving a lot of time at Dhala and also Nobat Dakim amongst all the posts on the website not able to see any mention of the Royal Warwicks. Someone must surely remember being there who was with our Regiment. Would be interested to hear from anyone who was there. The reference to the beheading happened about two months after I left Aden but was generally quieter than a few years after. Look forward to hearing from anyone.

I attended Chapel Hill school 1964 -1966 - I have fond memories of swimming most days at the Mermaid club - it was a somewhat surreal exitence. It gave me a love of travel & Middle eastern culture.

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!
