Decca, Van Kiep, Phuoc Thuy, South Vietnam. 1965-1967
A photo of three old comrades from Van Kiep. We all worked on Master South the term used for the Decca Navigator hyperbolic navigational station.
I don't know where I was at the time although it's possible I was in Hong Kong where I'd gone to be operated on for my haemerrhoids if I've spelled that correctly.
I' aleady spent a week in an army field hospital with this problem and didn't fancy being operated on there.
The life at Van Kiep was very good. A never to be forgotten time in fact. I think I was stationed there twenty six or twenty seven months.
