I was with the 1st Battalion Welch Regiment in Xeros in 1957-58. Our tented area was called Aberdeen Camp and was adjacent to the CMC yard. I had many friends in the CMC, most of them lived in Karovastasi. There was a good club in Skourotisa where many of our officers could be found on Saturday nights. The chief of police was Jim Williams and his deputy was Bill Mulcock. The district officer was Colin Thom. The other people I remember are Nijit Munir assistant manager Barclays Bank, Lefka and Mustapha who owned a restaurant and produced wonderful bean stew.
