XM959/B

DEC 1958 - NOV 1967

All our aircraft were based in Bahrain. I took the photo at Ibri in Muscat and Oman when on a detachment with the SAS. We used to take a Twin Pioneer down to Sharjah for two weeks at a time. Most of us flew both types, but bachelors like me spent a lot of time at Sharjah because the married pilots suffered a big drop in married overseas allowance because, unlike Bahrain, Sharjah was in the Aden non air conditioned zone! Cheers John James   27.03.10
