My Dad

It’s funnny how things work. This is a picture of my Dad taken in 1965, the year I was born. He is in Borneo with the Paras. The picture was always on the wall at home when I was growing up but it came back to me through a book about the history of the Paras via a question on an internet messageboard. Utrinique paratus.

    That’s truly amazing. If I didn’t know any different, that could be Mr Pink. Dad looks a bit of a lad. I wouldn’t like to have been on the end of his sights. Good to see you sat.

    Ps. Borneo was a proper soldier’s war. Most people today don’t even know we fought one there. It was a hell-hole.

    Us Eltringhams, we’re all born killers Mick.

    We need to get together properly soon. Take Sam for another meal out. He can come up with you and Tony one night if you like, get him out for something a bit different. mx
