I served in the RCT, from June 1965, when due to the McLeod Reorganisation, we became RCT instead of RASC.

At that time I was ....
7 Coy RASC to become 7 Sqn RCT, based at North Frith Bks in Blackdown, C Troop then went out to Aden to Al-Milah, on the Dhala Road, on return to UK we moved to Jellalabad Bks in Tidworth.

Later I served with the following units .......

200 Hovercraft Sqn RCT, HMS Daedalus (very briefly).
130 Flight RCT, RAF Seletar in Singapore.
10 Port Sqn RCT, Tanjong Belaya, Singapore.
55 Air Despatch Sqn RCT, RAF Changi, Singapore.
Air Transport Liaison Team RCT (FE), RAF Changi, Singapore.

I then took the Aircrew Selection Board and transferred to Army Air Corps.
