  13. It was rough times Archie ,if we left the camp we had to be sure to have our pig sticker bayonets on our belts.Quite a few guys lost their lives.I was there 1951 to1953.Much to my surprise in the year2005 they sent me a campaign medal. Unbelievable.
  14. When I was eighteen years old I lived for about two years in a tent in the Egyptian desert ,one of my tent mates was a soldier of about 40 years of age.He looked about 60.He was a quiet spoken man but occasionally would talk of his experiences as a prisoner of the Japanese at Changi prison campin Singapore Gentlemen his stories were horrendous.I sometimes think of him when I see the multitude of Japanese cars,TVsand computers nowadays.I hope and pray that my grandchildren will never have to suffer ordeals like my friend.The debt we all owe to these guys is massive.l

I once suffered through six months of chemotherapy every Tuesday at the Western Genearal in Edinburgh from April to October right throughout the pigeon racing season ,I felt rotten much of the time but I persevered,bred young birds trained twice a week and raced the full programme (with my usual lack of success).It might have been rank stupidesty or a wilful ignorance of the dangers of such behaviour, but I was determined to get the better of the. cancer and not become an invalid.I wish you all the best for a happy outcome.
