When Robert Jones first opened the site in 1994 he couldn’t have imagined that it would ever attract so many members and so much interest as it has generated. Sadly Robert passed away unexpectedly in 1918. he made us promise we would continue the running of the site in his name and uphold its good name this we promised to do. Colin and I don't have the expert knowledge in running the site but we will prod along as best we can to uphold its name.

I think Doug that Harry is right. I remember seeing Gharri written down when we were posted there. Adding to Harry’s list of the army’s use of Indian words….Bundock rifle, Tiffin lunch, Chokkie da, Indian worker, Chi tea, there are many more.
The Maltese use the right word Karozzin, after a few beers, Gharri is easier to say. The driver’s used to say “Gharri Johnny, two bob not too much” that was the start of negotiations.
