And now we get to one bit that I was quite looking forward to seeing – photos from my dad’s time in National Service. This is early 1957, so probably early on in basic training.
Not really too much that I can say about these, not knowing anything about it, but I think they are really interesting pictures – it’s very obvious that it’s not modern.
This one is captioned “Murray, extinguished”
This is from a bit later, and is simply titled “Ron reading comic”. I’m sure a military expert out there would be able to identify the beret badge.
