I served under TAFFY from Edinburgh to Cyprus he was one of our troop bombardiers and he was without doubt the most approachable NCO in the battery,I still suffer from the shock of that night,that is why when I heard a memorial was to be dedicated to our lads I have to be there,on rememberance day I always put a cross on our memorial with the names of our four comrades,as the legion comemaration says they will never grow old.

any ex-members of the regt out there get in touch and we can swing the lead colin.gray5@btopenworld.com love to hear from you
