As the secretary of the Hull branch of the PWO Assn I\'ve been asked to try & trace a veteran who may have served in 1 PWO, in Aden, sometime in 1966 - 67. A close friend, who now lives in NZ, is returning to the UK in the summer & his daughter would like to reunite him, if possible, with his old chum. Or at least tell him what happened to his old pal, who he hasn\'t had contact with since he emigrated in the early 70\'s.
The name of the person we\'re trying to trace is Adrian Barron, (I’m not sure of the spelling & no other details are known to me at this time.)
Does anyone remember anyone of that name, serving in the in Aden in the late 60\'s? If so do you know what happened to Adrian, or where he is now?
I am Sorry but the name is the only information I have been given. We’re not even sure that “Adrian” was in 1 PWO. He was a Hull man who joined up &, as far as we know, went to Aden in 1966 - 67. As he was local, & 1 PWO were there during that time frame, it is an assumption that he could have joined 1 PWO. The name was obtained by the daughter of the man in NZ & passed to Ian Caris, the Chairman of the Hull branch of the REME Assn. I met Ian at a local function recently, & he asked if I would help in trying to trace Adrian.
Please share this amongst your members in the hope that somebody knows, or knew Adrian. Any help/information would be greatly appreciated.
It would be fantastic if we could reunite these 2 friends after such a long time.
Regards.
Paul Atkin.

Hull Branch Secretary.

My father was Sgt Alan Wright serving with the RAPC at Singapore Lines.
I was only 6 at the time, we arrived as a family in 1966 we left Aden in 1967 leaving my Dad behind.
We lived in 2 places in Aden, a private hire in Khormaksar Beach Road, we then moved to 5 Ash House off Maala Straight. My fondest memories were the armed guards and guard land rovers escorting the school bus every day and as my Dad did the books at the Gold Mohur Bathing Club we spent most afternoons swimming

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.
