Mr Allan Dawling(GSM/BAR)
About my army service well I joined up in 1969 and left in 1976 I started as a young soldier and my regiment was the Royal Corps of Transport then went onto P company and then into 63-para-RCT after serving with 63-para I went back to my unit Tour of Duty Hong-Kong Cyprus UN-Tour N.Ireland and other country. I was blown up whilst on duty in N.Ireland in the 70s. I was mentioned in dispatches by Major Flood of 12 SQN RCT. I left HM.Forces in 1976 and found it very difficult to settle down in civvy street. Once you leave the military it is very hard to obtain information from the MOD. I must say that help did come from the Royal British Legion.
I have been involved with computers building my own machines and the internet for 10 years I am self taught web designer i work full time as a distribution manager for the subscriptions of The Financial Times,WSJE,IHT,Independent, It was Allan that had the idea for this website following The problems he had getting his pension sorted so we set this website up.
