    The main photo is of 25 Field Regiment as is the gun salute ( Queen's Coronation ) and the swimming team.
    Some may recognise the troop ship HMT Empire Trooper.
    The motley bunch is a mixture of Artillery and Infantry men. My late Father, a Gunner - once a Gunner always a Gunner, was sent with others from Hong Kong to Malaya in 1952 and ended up being incorporated with an Infantry unit. Until their CO found out!
    Can anyone recognise any faces?
    The other is of Dragon Battery. Manobeer I believe.
