I would like to apologise to all my loyal followers for the shoddy way in which I have neglected to write for you over the past year.  I know that time is always used as an excuse and although this was a contributing factor for my absence, travel to dodgy countries, changing work circumstances and business commitments have also played a role.  I won’t mention writers block but it does exist, believe me.  I am more settled and focused now and will make every effort to continue the journey with you.  I hope you continue to walk beside me.

    I am fascinated by your posts, hard truth and exciting to read. When I compare with the fiction some people try to write about our country’s war history I feel let down. You left me in suspense with the promise of another article which I have not seen.

      Good Day Wilson…….thanks for your kind comments. Time is simply not on my side right now and I know I owe you all another installment. I will do my very best to get something out this month. Hang in there please.

        I hope you are fine, I had hoped to see the promised article before the end of 2018, I still hope you will find time to write a book about your war time experiences. Cheers

    Hi there Mark. I have only found this blog now, very interesting reading. I wonder if you can help me, I was selected for S troop back in ’79 but unfortunately my employer happened to be my Dad who refused to release me to 24hr srtandby as he stated that I had enough of the war. (Protecting his son). Hence I never joined. I have always wondered who would have selected me to join your troop, and wondered what I might have done to earn this honoured selection? Thanks a lot. Craig Williamson

      Hi Craig…..my apologies for the tardy response. I have spoken to the person who put S Troop together and actually there was no criteria to being selected. I guess being in the right place at the right time might be a fair conclusion. Do you have any recollections of any ops you took part in with S Troop?

        No problem, apologies not needed. Thanks for your reply. I never served with S troop as I could not get my employer (my Dad) to agree with conditions of being on call 24 / 7. Something I really do regret. I have always wondered who selected my name in the first place and why. Thanks a lot anway. Keep well.
