Am sending you 3 pics of one of the team from 1975.
I took them of him assessing people on Kuria Muria.
You will know who he is but I have forgotten. Little did I realise at the time that I was witnessing history being made and although I have many photos, I did not keep good written records.
I am sending them because I think is important to have a record of ones life, especially the exciting and romantic bits that seem incredible as one ages (disgracefully) I hope you can send them to him.
If not, just add them to the collection.
If you are interested, other photos of mine can be seen on David Cuthbertson's site under 'Civil Aid'
(nurse at Salalah hospital 1975-76)
for replying so quickly.
Photographs have such power to evoke memories and emotion.
Keep up the good work of keeping people connected J
Does anyone know his name ? - webmaster
The 'RAF MO examining the boy' Trish Sole's photographs is David Davison. I worked with him at RAF Hospital Ely where he was the consultant general surgeon with the rank of Wing Commander. He later rose to Air Vice Marshall and I believe he served as honorary surgeon to the Queen. Hope this helps fill in a small gap in your excellent web site.
|All of the FSTs spent some time in in the local hospital giving what assistance they could. As time went by and it was safe to do so, when the opportunity arose, the later teams also gave assistance, not only on the mainland, but on the Kuria Muria Islands. In early 1972 the Matron in the hospital was a nurse whose husband worked for TayWood.|
