Lt Colonel AW (Tony) Davis - Malayan Veteran.
« on: February 11, 2018, 11:36:13 AM »
My old friend Tony Davis died at home  on 4th February after a short illness.  He served with A Company in Kuala Nerang and was later appointed Adjutant to Lt Colonel Tommy Woolsey.   Later Adjutant of the 9th Manchesters. Post amalgamation with the King's Regiment he commanded 1 King's in Hong Kong.

Charlie.  1 KIngs arrived in Londonderry from Hong Kong in March 1975.   Lt Colonel RG (Geoffrey) Lee, also a Malayan Veteran, assumed command.
