Thank you for clarifying that. I thought as much 😉

Re: WW1 uniform identification?

I've read this with a lot of interest, and the only point I can add is - 'have you contacted the museum of The Royal Northumberland Fusiliers?' To my knowledge there is an active RNF Association and they meet every year in June to commemorate those they lost in Aden in 1967. Sometimes it is amazing what information Regimental Museums hold. Just a thought.

Re: WW1 uniform identification?

Hi Brian

Thank you for the information. I looked on line yesterday and found the museum based at Alnwick Castle, approx 90 minute drive from me. It's now on my list to visit. I like the sound of attending one of the meets. Thanks for the heads-up on that 👍

Regards, Paul

Re: WW1 uniform identification?

Hello Paul,
This year being the 50th Anniversary of troops leaving Aden, there will no doubt be some parade in your part of the country. If you google Aden Veterans Association, click on enter, click on branches and scroll down to Northumberland, there's a contact email and telephone number for their secretary, who may well be a former RNF man, but if not, he'll know those that may give you more information.

Good luck and regards.

Brian
