Robert Leonard Farmer [ Bob ] 1675

I was one of the last National Servicemen, joining REME in 1960 as part of intake 60/10 at no 1 Training Batallion at Blandford. I was sent to no 9 platoon A company under Corporal/ Sergeant Derricut. The next stop was Depot where we learned to use an SLR, Sterling and Bren gun. In October I went to Aden and was posted to the Independent Armoured Squadron Workshop in Little Aden [Falaise Camp]. The next excitement is that we were rushed up to Kuwait to help repel a threatened invasion by Iraq which included the gaff of arriving at RAF Khormakser without our rifles and someone was sent back to camp to get them all. I wasn't long in Kuwait as I contrived to cut my thumb on a rusty screw which went septic and I was casevacked first to Bahrein and then to Aden where I spent a very enjoyable two months on the balcony at Steamer Point Hospital while they put my thumb right. Wounds do not heal in Aden so after six weeks it was realised my thumb would not buck the trend, I was again casevacked, this time to the UK and the Royal Herbert Hospital at Woolwich. After this I went to the LAD at 24 Signals at Catterick and finished my time there. If anybody has them, I would love to have some photographs of the Falaise Camp as all my luggage failed to arrive in the UK when I came home. Bob Farmer
