Queen Elizabeth’s Coronation
I still retain some vivid images from my times in the observation post at the AP. I was very privileged to witness the 25 pounder salvo of red white and blue smoke shells that descended on the forward slopes of the Chinese held hills, our celebration for the coronation of Queen Elizabeth II.
This must have been after I had been transferred to Able Troop, who were located to the left of Little Gibraltar, with its AP on Hill 159. This location was a little nearer towards the Hook area.
