30 Field Sqn Royal Engineers. Osnabruck/Hameln 1960-1979
Dirty 30 were posted to Aden in October 1966 to build a spur from the Dhala road in the Radfan mountains to the Wadi Taym. This site is dedicated to all members of Dirty 30 who served during the 60's and 70's especially those who served during the Aden tour.
I am setting up the website again. Even though the Dizzies didn't get us I was beaten by HTML. I was a Sapper in Plant Troop joined 30 in January 1966, left for a trade course in July 67 and was posted to 62 NE Support Squadron RE Cyprus afterwards.
ANY MISTAKES ON THE SITE PLEASE LET ME KNOW
GUESS THE SAPPER
