Stopover in Gan (maldives)

Fond memories of Gan, Stoppover while with 37 Sqdn Shackletons from Khormaksar Aden in 1965.. Bloody good hospitality and fond memories of the marine bar. Does anyone remember it??

Re: Stopover in Gan (maldives)

Hi peter,think there is quite a few on here that remember the marine bar,myself I only visited the once probably being the shy retiring type and that was in the last week of my tour,also remember a female member of a visiting Nimrod crew on test left items of her underwear to be displayed above the bar after a visit.While we are talking bars any of the regulars visit the Imps or Imperial bar in the Pakistani camp was it considered a bit posher than the rest.Anyway Happy new year to all hopefully have a prosperous one.Bob
