HEALEY: A small group of us, all ex-army, are searching for our old comrades.

We were stationed at No.4 training regiment, Royal Engineers, Gibraltar Barracks, Aldershot in Hampshire 1959-61. We are searching in particular for Sapper Peter Healey who we knew was living in the Southampton area during his National Service.

Peter might like to know that so far the group of old comrades comprises Tony Griffiths, Tony Belton, Ivan Rumsby, Colin Proctor, Dave Pipes, Dave Brooks, Ron Hudson, Frank Deakins, Geoff Vercoe, Trevor Stephens and David Sills.

If anyone has any knowledge as to the present whereabouts of Sapper Healey, please contact me.
