Thanks for going the extra mile and finding that piccy of Smiffy, H Smith was in the Cadets with me and I remember him joining IJLB about 2 years ahead of me, he also saved me from a kicking on at least 1 occaision. I'm sure I'm not the only one to miss him!
That is a magnificent piece of work. Falklands happened when I was a newbie civvy but there are faces there I remember from NI days.
Is there not somewhere where this could be entered for a recognition of some sort?
Have you offered it to the National Army Museum?
Jim was my OC Troop when I was a young scaley sprog not even old enough to drink. He wasnt that much older really looking back at it from the benefit of time.
Took me and another lad from my troop on a weeks sailing/drinking trip around the Isle of Wight in the sunny summer of IIRC about 1978 as he was a qualified sailing skipper. Good days.
