I took over 600 photos over those few months of preparation and eventual 4 days of action. Though 31 Sqn saw very little action we saw the results and some of the horrors. We were pleased to get home. The final act was to burn all the letters guys had written home in case they were killed, these had been kept in an ammo tin in my command vehicle. When the letters were ceremoniously burned this act closed the war for me. I left the forces later that year, PVR'd and within weeks of leaving was earning more in week in civvie street than I earned in a month in the Army.
