Hi all. I am a new member wishing you all good health and happiness. I joined the British Army as a boy soldier and served at Strensall camp York which was also, apart from being a training camp was also a demob depot. I completed two tours of Aden 1965/66/67.and N. Ireland 1969/70/ One of my many regrets is not being interested in militaria during my military service. One of my early memories of a boy soldier is while being on 'Jankers.' For having dull belt clasps.(They looked ok to me.') was helping the local scrap man load plywood tea chests full of brass cap badges onto the back of his lorry. Followed by tea chests full of Bullion badges because No 1 dress uniforms 'Blues.' were no longer being issued and were considered obsolete along with the bullion badges. A few No 1 uniforms were kept back to be Borrowed for soldiers weddings ect. Ten years after leaving the army i began collecting British military cap badges. Ah such is life. Kind Regards Army Vet.
