I will only know you a little bit Tug if you know at least one of the guys! Well done on the Twynam and Hamala Camp, who could forget the luxury of air conditioning out there. I'm almost sure you will know at least one of the guys but I will give all their names at a later date just to see if anybody knows them all. Two clues that may help are:- all 'B' Coy 3 Para personnel and the date 1964.

Ten out of Ten Alex for Butch Bruton MM. The occasion Christmas festivities where 'B' Coy were allowed to decorate a Land Rover as a float and wear fancy dress. These characters were fooling around with the wigs. From left to right :- Tex O'Conner, Ian Weatherall, Chris Grover and Butch Bruton MM (Deceased). Picture of the float to follow with some more mysterious people.

Only knew Big Fred McFarlane from a distance after he got pissed in Hamala Camp and threw a rock over canteen dropping me in the nosh queue prior to Ex "Sandstone". Never did get to thank him for putting me on rear party. Medical Corperal must have been drinking with him as he was in the same state but he made a fine job with the needle and thread on me bonce!!

'B' Coy Christmas festivities in Bahrain (2nd tour). Disquised Land Rover as float. Tex O'Connor and Ray Slack as James Bond and Pussy Galore on trailer. Butch Bruton, Jim Fletcher and Scouse McBride and three others quenching their thirst around the bar.

B Coy 1964

Post  jmc on Wed Aug 11, 2010 5:36 am

Don't recognise anyone ( I was MMG Pl then) but Tom Dooley must know them. He was still in the Battalion then, before he went to the Freefall Team.
Played golfm with Tom last week, still living in Crookham. When I see him next I'll direct him to the Club website.
