Re: 48th. Field Regt. RA in Malaya
Hi John, I was in Malaya with the 48th Field Regiment in 1956-1958 when they were disbanded and most of us were returned to the UK. I was a Gunner trained as a Storeman attached to the REEME. I had loads of photos of those times but sadly a lot have been lost.The first Christmas I was there 6 of us formed a skiffle band as a laugh for the NAAFI Christmas bash. Which was was quite a hit with everyone. We were invited to take part in many music events all over Malaya. I still have a few pictures of the skiffle group who were called The Tampin skiffle group. Some of the guys names were Harrison, Talbot, Chadwick the armoured, Balchin who I think was a Medic, me and a couple of others. I also have a few pictures of some of the chaps I knew out there and of the trips around the country. Keep in touch if you like via this message board.
