Mark,

Excellent Pic's. Which one of the Kilties is you?

Mark, looking at Pic "Talana C" do you know the name of the chap with the green cap on? He looks very familiar, might be a guy that I served with in the SAAF from 1979-1984.

Cheers

Thanks, Adrian,

The bloke in the green cap's name is O'Farrell. He's in 5 Med Bn now as far as I know. His twin brother (ex Jocks) is in the Life Guards. Both of them would be a bit young but they have a notorious uncle of the same name and similar looks that would be about that time. I'm the Kilty holding the 303 in the Talana B pic.

Cheers,

Mark

Mark,

Thanks for the reply. Yes,the surname rings a huge bell. I shall have a look through all my photo's from the good old days.

Must say you look very smart in the Kilt.
