HQ 3rd Commando Brigade Band 1963 - 1966

The second portrait was taken at Kalabaken camp, a forward post in Sabah. We left Tawau on April 24: I know this because Jock Hunter had won a bottle of champagne whilst playing for a St. George's Day Ball the previous evening. We shared it out in our tin mugs whilst chugging up the river, deep in the Ulu. Our tinned rations? Cold kippers! From left to right, "Chippy" Carpenter, "Sticky" Weller, Pete Reeves, Eddie Pescud, (B/Cpl) Tony Oberdries, Derek Fisk, (the official back view) Reg Russell, and (B/Cpl) Pete Fox.
