Photographs of The Sultan’s Armed Forces 1974-76

Personalities and some Uniforms of the period with Thumbnail photograph links

Photographs of personalities in SAF were few and far between during the tour. Some names have lapsed in the memory, while others are no longer with us.
A request received for regimental dress photographs has highlighted only the few taken, and those shown in row 3 below were taken in February 1976 after the new ‘service dress’ had been initiated in late 1975.
