Hi All, My old Dad was in the Signals Regiment in WW2. I remember him telling me of camps at Catterick and Dewsbury after which he spent time in the Falklands as a lineman being billeted with the Halls Family at Teal Inlet. After his stint in the Falklands he went to India, Malaya and Singapore where he was saved from fighting by the dropping of the Atom bomb. He was instead given duties guarding Japanese POWs until being demobbed. He sadly passed away a few years ago at the age of 92. I have some photos that I'll scan and post if anyone's interested. For his army details, I'll have to go through his papers. Also have a poem he wrote with his army mates called "Ode to a Lineman". He did have another poem they wrote which had a verse about each of them. He mislaid that one which was a great pity as it named them all. I do remember the one about Dad though - Then comes Bert Turley. A lone farmer from Kent. He couldn't get milk on the Island. So on liquor his money was spent. I'll have to find the Ode to a Lineman and post it here. We emigrated to Australia from Tunbridge Wells, Kent back in 1969.
