55 Coy Tug-of-War Team 1958
Photo: Noel Buckley

The photo was taken after we won the K.L. championship in 1958.If my memory serves me right, we beat a Sikh police team two pulls to nil. As you look at the photo Major Thacker is the Commanding Officer and standing behind him is Sgt Adamson the teams coach. I am by the C.O., immediately on his left. Unfortunately I cannot remember any of the other lads names but I think the one on my left was Pte Goodman. I'd be pleased to hear from old mates.
