Sixty One years ago Britain was in a war that lasted twelve years. A war that for many has now been well forgotten.

The Lost Patrol ...
Introducing Sgt Eric Gulston MM, who led a five man recce patrol that encountered a large communist terrorist patrol. Out numbered and out gunned, Eric led his patrol in a game of cat and mouse into the jungle to shake them off his tail. This patrol only supposed to last four hours ended up lasting seven days. With no water, food or malaria tablets, all of Eric's patrol emerged safely out of the jungle seven days later. Several communist terrorists were killed. Sgt Eric Gulston was awarded the Military Medal in 1950 for bravery in the field. He died in June 09.
