Dave Darby's Sabratha 1953-1956

Postby Bob_H » Sun Jan 26, 2014 4:06 pm

Dave was with the Regiment between 1953-56 at Sabratha, he says "I was with the L.A.D. R.E.M.E and I was always treated as equal and I had a great 3yrs with the boys."
Dave kicks off his sequence of photos with scenes form a stricken tank that went over the cliffs during night manoeuvres. Unfortunately two of the crew lost their lives:
