And this from David Morris-

Hi Gordon,

I was posted in Jan 1966 to Aden, to CRE (ops).  It turned out to be a specialist unit associated with MEXE called Project Forsdale involved with the testing of various means petroleum storage and pumping. The small unit was made up of various branches of the army, me being there because I was an Engine Fitter IC &P (internal combustion and pump). The main force was made up of RAOC , REME and two RE staff. The OC was Major Vernon-Betts RE, with the 2 i/c being a Flt Lt Simmons RAF.

I know that it wasn’t the biggest RE work place in the world, but it was ours.

 

We lived in Anzio Barracks, and saw a few Squadrons come and go on their “short” tours of Aden.

 

Regards

D Morris (landrover)
