My thanks also Cliff,
Just managed to watch the first 8 and found them very enlightening, it seems that during  our time there(1951-54) it became known as the 'Iron Man's' (Gen. Sir Gerald Templar) time - the period during which the setup  began to change, nice to know that after all these years.
Regards,
George or should I sign off as Apai Tuai George. ;D ;D

George, it just goes to prove that we are never too old to learn.  I have certainly learnt a lot about the 1st Bn in General and the time I was in Germany and Malaya with my father.
The link came from a contact who went to Slim School about 3 years after me, he joind the Parachute Regiment and served for 22 Years.  Out of all the ex Slimmers I am in contact with I am the only one that joined the RAF some did not join any service but the others that did all joined the Army.
