    Beautiful Steve, great that you kept it.
    I find it sad many vets/their family sold their medals.
    Makes me wonder what happened to the guy on my medal.

    I also have my original diaries kept on both tours, ID tags, beret and 13 troop T shirt I last wore on patrol in New Lodge - October 1974. Other items are my range score card when training before deployment to Ireland, all my photographs I took on my last tour, 'wanted' cards, yellow card, blue card - people who served there will know what these are... And no son to leave them to!

    As for your medal. My service number began 241. That equates to a '69' intake. That will give you an idea when I was there. Numbers starting '242' were probably late 70's

    Cheers,
    Steve.
