Would like to hear some anecdotes about my father Alek (Jock) Tarwid from his time in Oman. He has never been one to talk about any of his escapades. I occasionally meet people he served with and they all seem to have interesting stories. Hope David Lloyd's bollocking wasn't too severe!

Cannot believe I am looking at a Kelston ! I had to repair one of those on top of the Jebel at Salalah and all I got was a bollocking from Jock Tarwid for not carrying my sidearm !

Mud, tents and more mud! A familiar scenario!

And so after the sun of El Adem, back to some sort of reality. This is Templeton in S.Wales. It did rain a bit, I must say that in case you can't see the mud. Not the camouflged tents on the skyline all safe and secure. Note also the L-type compressor and the ubiquitous Kelston fuel pump. A marvellous piece of engineering that was!!

Safe and secure tents noted - reminds me a Arctic training at Aviemore - we pitched our camp higgledy piggledy - but secure. Army Officer "Major Disaster" said "these tents are not regimental" - result ? "regimented " tents blew away in the night ! Moral ? If it aint broke - dont fix it !

Yup, that's a Kelston and an L-type compressor. That's Jack Horner manfully striding toward the vehicle.
