55 Field Surgical Team RAMC

Timeline

This timeline or summary of events was labouriously created in the MOD by Lt Col J.H.G. Crompton. It is now present in physical form in the PRO at Kew and is shown here under the Open Government Licence for those who wish to cross reference events in the Dhofar War and fix dates.

It only covers a limited period, at times the data is limited and there are gaps. It ends in December 1972. It does contain a huge number of references to various sources. Some of these can be consulted and are in the public domain and some cannot as it in inadvisable to climb over the wire into the camp at Hereford.

The pages are presented as *.pdf files as this is economical in space and allows words to be enlarged where they may be indistinct. It is currently – April 2020 – a time filler whilst I am in lockdown between cycles of mowing the lawn and weeding……

The image reference numbers are “internal” and refer to the SD cards used when digitising the pages at the PRO
