  1. Bob DUXBURY says:

    Comments as follows. The ASM was Jock or Slim Whitehall, he was known by both Nik Names. His name isn’t given alongside the photo. The photograph was taken in 1965 not circa 1070’s during the ”Confrontation” as it was called with Indonesia. The LAD location where the photo was taken was in a Rice ‘Godown’ or storage facility on Green Road on the outskirts of Kuching.

    Bob Duxbury, that’s me sitting on the front wing of the 4T Bedford with my elbow on the window. I was with the LAD from October 1964 to Oct 1965.

Do you have any further information about this image, such as names, location, date, event, etc?
