On 1 Dec 1957 Dave Thorn and I shared a Bible at Brighton to be sworn into the Army. On 3 Dec we boarded a Steam Train at Worthing to go to IJLB at Plymouth. As Dave was older he left a term before me. WhenI arrived in the Battalion on 1 Jan 60 with Cpl Pearce (Pioneers) After a briefing by C Coy CSM (Dickie Waite), I was shown to my room by L cpl D Thorn. When I left the Bn in Dover to go as RSM 5 Queens Dave was aL cpl POL Storeman. My last 4 were 2744. Dave was2745. I went said goodbye. I stiil called him Dave.
