From March to September 1975 elements of the 1st Royal tank Regiment were responsible for the UN coverage of the Paphos District and were figurative in the transferring of the Turkish Cypriots in the area to new areas north of the Attilla Line.
In March this year, to mark the 40th anniversary, ex-members of the Regiment will meeting up in Paphos for a reunion. I am organising the reunion from 7th -13th March and I will be staying at the Hilltop Gardens in Paphos from Feb 9 to March 25.
If any readers, be they ex-pats or Cypriots, have any memories of our presence in the area at that time we would love to hear from them, especially if they have photographs.
I can be reached at the Hilltop during the dates given or by email at [email protected] and look forward to hearing from any readers who may be in a position to make our stay more interesting.
