Hugh Fox writes:

As promised, I have now sorted out various photographs and papers etc., from my time with SCLI. The enclosed mainly cover our time in Aden, Norway and Canada.

In the Aden material I have enclosed the original pages from two editions of the Cornish Guardian as these cover many individual soldiers names.

These Beverleys were in the middle East in the 60's but not necessarily in Aden during our time, but identical ones were used to take SCLI personnel 'up country' and should bring back memories for those involved.
