My dad served in Sek Kong from December 1957 to 1958. Does anyone remember him? Dave Gray from Dorset.

I asked Fred Evans, who was stationed there 1957-9. Unfortunately he doesn't remember your father. He noted there were around 600 men there at the time, so there were many that he didn't get to know.

Fred suggests that to help trigger memories in any future readers, you also let us know your father's rank, the squadron he served in, and any nickname he was known by then.

Regards, David

My dad served with the queen's lancashire regiment 1n 1950s
