General Friedberger

John Friedberger - Dougie Covill

Bill Hatrick - Jim Fry             

Bill lives in Australia but  came over to see family . Jim and Bill arranged to meet at the memorial with their wives. They both served in Aqaba  1956/57 as National Service men. Jim served in 1st Troop C Squadron in Maan and Aqaba as tank driver then tank commander under Sergeant Jim Thirst. Bill Hatrick was taken off the fatal plane which crashed in 1957 to make room for a compassionate case and still can't believe his luck to this day. John Friedberger and his wife together with Dougie Covill came and introduced themselves to Bill and Jim whilst they were admiring the memorial. Bill and his wife have now returned to Australia and are keeping in touch by Email.
