    Captain Sam Mercer and Cdr Ted Burrows. Ted Burrows was only Cdr around that time holding a Royal Humane Society Medal which the pic shows him wearing on his right chest.

    Hey Gomez!!
    1971. Divs at Philly. Yeah Sam Mercer & Teddy Burrows.
    As you know many of our campaign medals were not officially recognised & issed well into the
    ’90s including our NZOSM Near East (Suez). So Jim’s quite right in a way.
    Anyway mate, do you know what happened to Bob Gillespie? We like many others decided not to take advantage offer of “up homers” for xmas ’55 and spent it in Kings Cross UJC. Bloody tiddly oggie & pints of ‘arf & ‘arf followed by an “all nite in” Big Deal!
    Catch yer Lofty mate!
