Bob Edwards looking for muckers 1Wilts

From Dolores Hewitt Edwards via messenger
This is my husband Graham (Bob) Edwards in 1958. From 1956 to 1958 he served in Cyprus with the First Battalion Wiltshire Regiment. He would like to be in touch with old comrades who came from Gloucester and environs. they were John Curtis, Les Crowther, Ron Davis (Davies), Ron Mansell, and Danny Thomas. If anybody knows any of these people please can you let me know. They are probably in their early eighties now. Graham is 81. Here's hoping!

DERR@60 Photographs Now Published

The photos have now been uploaded to Google under a new DERR google account. A slight change in the way that the photos are now hosted - Now using Google Drive rather than Google Photos. There was a technical reason for this but it’s the same nett result in the way people can view and download either all the photos in one large batch, download just one days’ worth or pick and choose individual photos to download.

The link for you to copy and paste into your email to everyone is the following – https://drive.google.com/open?id=1ete2HyfLYWnKbPZMkRUguce9DQOFGgZ6

There is no password, nor is a google account or any sign in required – It’s a simple case of click the link and browse the photos which are contained in three folders labelled Friday/Saturday/Sunday.

We will be informing everyone of how to access the photos via a Google link once it has all been set up and ready to go.
