...& Who forgot? My generation were certainly aware of Aden, Borneo, Malaya, Cyprus but I accept the likes of that moron Pete Docherty think the Gulf War was something to do with Gen Pinochets internment @Wentworth!
On returning from operations in Malaysia a friend and I were greeted by the Landlord of our local pub who remarked he hadn't seen us for over a year. We informed him, rather proudly, we had been on active service in Borneo. He had no idea of British involvement in that part of the world. Didn't do our egos much good though he did stand us both a pint!
Radfan received a little more publicity though there was more media interest in the 'Red Wolves' than in joint services operations!
