  1. During a rest cure after ops in Sarawak in the early '60s we were billeted on an RAF station, I can't remember which one, it may have been Labuan. Anyway, to continue the story; it was during the wet and water must have got into the electrics of a Hunter because one or more of the Aden cannon started firing and shot the leg off a watch tower at the edge of the airfield. I have a vivid memory of men running down a leg as the tower slowly fell over. Does anyone else recall this event? :?
