I seem to remember he joined the Grenadier Guards (after a clash with his father?), and because of his much mentioned parachute accident ('chute didn't open ...) the Grenadier Guards' famous Parachute Company seems to be a good guess - but had that unit (or any Grenadier Guards unit) between c. 1962-1967 a spell at Aden, where he is said to have seen action? And was he serving in rank and file, or as commissioned/non-commissioned officer?
PS: Does anybody know his full name (may help to find him in Army documents)?
Many, many thanks in advance!
