Re: Welcome to the Stonecutters Island Forum
In 1968 after 12 months detached duty at Toward TaytnuiltW/T near Dunoon living at Gortanansaig Farm. I was drafted to JSTS Stonecutters Island. Still being a single man I lived in the singlemen's quarters inside the complex. Very comfortable once you got used to the wildlife. I had previously been stationed at Rinella W/T at Malta, so there was no change in equipment and I settled down to a very happy 15 months. It was a fantastic place and I did not want to leave I made a lot of good friends there. it was during the period of the Chinese Cultural Revolution and I dont think calling the station cat meowse tung helped. It was also during the vietnam war and hong kong was the main R and R for the american troops and their families. I lost all my photographs of the island so if anybody has any I would be grateful if I could obtain copies.
