Dave, taking the above Cyprus images on 17 March 04 writes, "Whilst on holiday in 1995, I took these pics of the old camp which is now derelict and hidden away behind a park. The main road was re-routed away from the camp therefore is hard to find. The camp at Palios was in the process of being demolished and the two photographed buildings were all that remained. Villa St Barbara is still as it was. I think the camp in Pahpos was called St George's Camp. When we left it in '75 we handed it back to the Greek National Guard then it eventually became a junkyard.

From Dave Hendo

A few photo’s of Steve (Scouse) Williams Jane Jen and myself in Townsville . He was up here visiting a cousin and we met for a few beers and a meal.It was great to catch up on the news from home, its amazing reading the Forum and listening to Steve how upset we all are at the state of the country and the way its being led. Perhaps the BNP is the way forward. Where do I join, is there a RTR branch??. You will notice a picture of me laughing,( I was trying to bollock him for a misdemeanour from 1982 in Cyprus but I must have gone soft in my old age.) just shows I can. Thanks Dave For These Images May 2004

(159) Queens birthday parade in Kowloon late 50s. The salute is being taken by the governor who name was Black. This is my tank and as you can see it has been highly bulled for the occasion. We took the tanks to Kowloon by train from Fanling station, in the new territories, loaded on flats. There was a race to see which of the squadrons could load the quickest. A squadron won by some minutes. It was great fun going as quick as you could up the train over the flats. Were billeted at the Kai Tak airport with the RAF. Claude Kent.
