Site Credits (updated 5th Oct. - 2009)
This site has been created to record the short history of the SCLI, its day to day activities and the memories of the men of all ranks that served in this fine regiment..
Mike Pruett (son of Dave Pruett), has again designed the site for me and without his help and support I would not be able to complete the task I have set myself.
I have with the help of other ex SCLI created the website that is entirely devoted to the 9 year history of the regiment. The site tells the story through the eyes of the men who served, whatever their rank. You will note that first names are used on the site but the rank is much respected, what we all share is a love for our regiment as we are forvever part of that regimental family.
You are invited to submit articles for submission to the site, I need material for the years 1963 to 1968. Many of you must have pictures relating to that period. The articles can be a tribute or memory lane type, they will all be treated with respect.
If sending images by Email attachment, please make them jpg's if possible. Please write in pencil on the back of photographs sent in post brief desription of the image.
My grateful thanks to all who have sent donations for the website expenses, the generosity means the fund is in credit, my thanks to you all.
If you intend sending me a packet in the post and do not know my address, Email me first and I will telephone you or email you my address.
I will record here all people who have helped me with material:
Special thanks to: General Sir Jack Deverell KCB OBE, , Brigadier Alastair Fyfe DL and Lt. Col. David Eliot.
