1st Royal Tank Regiment Sek Kong 1957

Hi my dad Edwin Soloman was in the 1st Royal Tank Regiment based in Sek Kong, I am trying to contact people that was based there with him and any photos

Forum: 

I seem to be in the same boat. Only just started my search. My father in law is Anthony 'Tony' Littlewood, he was a ration driver in the 1st Royal Tank Regiment based at Sek Kong. Looking for anyone who knew him, photos and stories.

Thank

Hi Natalie. and Lisajk.

I served with 1st. Royal Tank Regiment as a national serviceman in Sek Kong 1957/8,although conscripted in R.E.M.E. I became attached to B Squadron 1st. R.T.R. For 10 months in 1957/58. I joined this forum in April 2018 and now nearly finished uploading photos. many taken in or around  Sek Kong to view them enter- bryan Panters photos- in the search box top right corner of page. Then enter -fred Evans photos- as he was also in the Regiment 1957/59 and has lots more photos for you to view.

  If you or father in law Tony  have any photos relating to his time in Hong Kong this is the forum to have them identified I have been amazed how the members of the forum have identified many of mine considering they were taken over 60yrs ago and H.K. has completely been rebuilt.

The photo here is of men of 1st Royal Tank Regiment disembarking from Troop Ship- Nevasa -at Kowloon in June 1957 after a 5 week journey via South Africa from Southampton a distance of 12,000 miles.(so I was told).
