met a few Aden vets as i used to go up the local Masons when i was back for a drink with my father who was a member. remember one Guy who used to visit my Father a lot. He was in Korea. was actually a yorkshire man. He ran shooting ranges near Dunblane where i grew up. was a big guy built like a bear & everywhere he went he had two whippet dogs. He was a handfull when drunk though. Only spoke about Korea once when drinking whisky with my old man. was a charachter.

Borneo... I like the shots of the Pack Howitzer. Never got to fire it but was by all accounts a good Gun & air portable. The Light Gun came in as i joined the Artillery so we did our Basic Guns course on that.

Edinburgh Castle, Papillon no doubt did Duty at the Castle. I did fire a salute there for the Queens Birthday (1988).

BTW Joe I'm not drinking so much anymore, never actually did apart from some special Saturdays. Now I'm reducing drastically my beers. Maybe I will even quit overall, but ... nuh.
That's not me. And guys who need to quit drinking 100% in order to control it are alcoholics - which I never was. So few beers (bears :)) every now and than, why not?

Sometimes I have tendency to talk crazy s*it with or without alcohol :)...So get use to it or ban me from this little special club. :(
Now, now Dusa, you’re starting to sound a bit like me. I have been drinking a fair amount of alcohol since I was 14. But now that I’m pushing 80 and starting to feel my age a bit, I have drastically decreased my daily alcohol intake to 6 or 7 cans of beer, followed by two generous glasses of wine with dinner, a vodka and tonic at sun down and a nice single malt whisky before bed. That’s all, so I’m nearly a teetotaller myself by now.

(And it stops me from posting nearly as silly rubish as Donald Trump as well. (Never got quite that silly, though.))
