It's that time of year again!

Folks.

It's the time of year when I have to pay for the hosting of this site. My time, which is now my own, is given for free, as are my technical abilities - such as they are!

But I do have to pay for hosting.

Many sincere thanks to all those who have kindly made donations throughout the year. No matter how large or small they are very much appreciated and I hope I replied to thank each donor personally.

However I have to say that, in spite of a request to do so when someone registers as a member of the site for the first time, very few people actually do make a donation. It is usually the faithful few regulars who help keep the site going for all of us to use.

So if you think the site is worth keeping going in this day and age of "social media" such as individual Faceache groups etc. then please click on the donate button in the menu bar.

Thanks and may I wish you all a Happy, Healthy and especially a Safe New Year.

Mike

Hi Mike, thanks for doing all of the photos, as I know there were quite a few, and that it would have taken you a while. I've sent a donation through PayPal. Thanks for all your hard work on the website - I know for one that I appreciate it. Really look forward to seeing the latest photos and comments, and not so much the Last Posts. Have a great year and stay safe - hopefully you'll get over to Kyrenia in the not too distant future. Take care.

Thanks Colin and your donation has been received and acknowledged.

You're right - it would be nice to see more photos being sent in. People don't have to register to be a member of the site to send me pictures but, of course, the idea of this site when the late Brian Streetly set it up was to let people get in touch with old mates with whom they served in the Corps, and a photo is a good way of reminding people who we were and where we served.

If you want to see what many of us looked like in the "olden days" then take a look at the Then and Now photo album. More pics for this would be great!

To send any photos just send me an email or click on the link at the foot of every page.

Mike

To all Corps members wherever you might be.
Keep the comms open, our families need them more than ever right now at the end of this difficult year. A very big thanks to all serving members who will have to help with the covid bug and vaccination over the Christmas period. I hope you get the recognition you all deserve when this thing is back to normal.
And a very big thanks to Mike Graham for keeping this site up and running!
To anyone who knows me: yes I am still alive and kicking. Maybe next year I will hear from someone else I haven't heard from in 50 years or so.
Make the best of the festive season you can in these times and spare a thought - and perhaps a bit more - for all those who are not as well off as yourself.

The new book “ROGER so far” lists a Cpl Pete Dobson as a contributor. I would like to make contact with anyone who may have info as to his whereabouts. He was in Fayid in 1954-1955 in 3GHQ Signal Regiment, an ex-boy soldier, and I nearly shot him at one time.
