23901915 Terry Bartlett - SCLI - LI

I joined the S.C.L.I. in March 1962, basic training at the KOYLI Depot at Pontefract, then onto Battalion at Gibraltar/ Libya/ Berlin/Gravesend/Norway/Aden/Ireland/Kenya/Lemgo.

I was then posted to Junior Inf. Bde. Shorncliffe Kent as a driving Instructor, with discharge from the army in November 1972, by then as a Corporal.

I am hoping that old friends will see my pictures and remember me, it will be good to get to reunion in 2008 and hopefully renew friendships. Already I have spoken to Lt. Col Ray Hall on the telephone and after some thought he did remember me, he was a Sgt. Major during my time.
