|As time has gone by the website
has not addressed very much of what was happening
outside the immediate environs of RAF Salalah. Few links have been made with the
military activities that were
occurring at the time.
|The intention in this section of the
website is to explore the circumstances surrounding the
wounding of those patients who were admitted to the FST.
Comment about what was happening in Dhofar at the time
is also included.
The period from 28th March
1972 to the 27th July 1972 will be covered. This period
starts with the first anaesthetic given by the Johnston
team and ends with their last anaesthetic given by Pete
Canning whilst one of the other OTTS operated.
The right hand column in the table refers to what was
going on at the time but it may
not be where the casualty was injured.
|The basis for the timeline comes from
the FST anaesthetic records and from the summary of the Dhofar War made by BATT and released
by the PRO
in 2005. It is available from the PRO under the
The other sources that have been used are defined in the
"Key" at the bottom of the list of wounded.
I hope to commence the timeline in the
autumn of 2010 and gradually allow it to progress as
time allows. Any comments will be most welcome.
