Re: Looking for old comrades

sent an email to Joe asking for contact details.

Re: Looking for old comrades

just had a phone call from Joe, he is 81 and keeping fine, unfortunately his Wife passed away 4 years ago.
His BC was called Cambell and the BSM was Baldwin nicknamed Chilli, only allowed to call him that at the xmas dinner. LOL

Joe said he is the one standing at the end of the row with the fag in his hand just before the only one in uniform. He is also the one hunkered down with a lad called Munro with his hand on his shoulder.
Joe will be sorting out his photos and either posting or emailing when his Grandson gets round to helping.
