LIMBU WON HIS VICTORIA CROSS at the Battle of Bau, Sarawak, Indonesia, Borneo - On 21st November 1965 Lance Corporal Rambahadur Limbu's 16-man squad was ordered to take out a key Indonesian position on the island of Borneo. Around 150 yards from enemy lines they encountered about 30 Indonesians holding a position on the top of a jungle-covered hill, moving forward with two men & when 10 yards from an enemy machine-gun position, the sentry opened fire on them, Limbu rushed forward & killed him with a grenade. The remaining enemy then opened fire on the 3 men, wounding two. Limbu then, under heavy fire, made three journeys into the open, two to bring in the wounded men & one to retrieve their bren-gun with which he charged down the hill & killed more of the enemy with a second sentry in a tower opening fire on him. The Indonesian terrorists retreated with the British in pursuit. At least 24 Indonesians were killed while the British lost three men killed (including Rfn.

Campaign Service Medal 1962, clasp Northern Ireland to 24266448 PTE. A. SHARP, RAOC. Served in Explosive Ordnance Disposal (EOD). Quarter ending Sept 1973 he was in Northern Ireland with EOD (Broomwatch) who our activity continues unabated, and during the last quarter we have seen 273 explosions, neutralised 143 IEDs and handled 17,900-lbs of recovered explosives. Three of the enemy assisted in our disposal activity recently, successfully disposing of the bomb and themselves. The only bit of the car we recovered was a dash panel with a warning on it, “Passengers travel in this vehicle at their own risk""! We have also had assistance from several of the enemy who were caught red-handed, laying bombs; they were invited to remove or defuse them. Sergeant Glasby recently got together a shooting team for the Northern Ireland rifle meeting. With only a minimum of practice they finished fifth, eleventh and sixteenth out of sixty nine teams in the three competitions they entered. The team captain achieved moderate success himself and his loot includes the trophy for the individual champion at arms, the individual rifle trophy and the trophy for the inter-unit sniper match in which he had some assistance from Captain K. Cook of the Royal Regiment of Fusiliers. Since our last contribution we have said farewell to many people. Captain Chris Field said a reluctant farewell to Belfast and was dined-out by ‘A' and ‘B’ Companies of the Glosters. He was remotely delivered to the dining room astride a wheelbarrow specially decorated, and his sartorial elegance for the occasion had to be seen to be believed. Also gone from Belfast are SSM Mayne, who, after a bomb scare at the Ulster Museum developed an immense interest in the culture of this land, and Sergeant 'Plate' Bowen. The things this guy could do with a plate were amazing; his most embarrassing moment was having to ask for his plate back from a householder who was totally unaware it was in his bath! It got there via two walls and a radiator! He improved his hooking technique enormously during his stay with us and his fishing should benefit accordingly. From Londonderry we have lost that well known double act of Sergeants Thompson and Smith, experts in many things ranging from bending elbows and ears to large scale community relations exercises with the local populace. Our country cousins have said farewell to SSM Grant and Sergeant Stewart. A lot of the supporting cast have also left for their parent units and we trust they are recuperating well. Various activities in Northern Ireland are best not mentioned, but Lance Corporal Bienkowskl, Lance Corporal May of the Royal Signals, Signalman Bell, Signalman King, Private Taylor and Private Sharp all left their mark on the unit and on the population of the countryside. All have been replaced by eager soldiers whose names cannot, as yet, be revealed. However, we understand that we have a Marine on loan for bomb disposal duties.” The only EOD RAOC unit in Northern Ireland is 321 EOD. The unit was previously titled 321 EOD Unit, then 321 EOD Company RAOC, Royal Army Ordnance Corps and was re-badged as a unit of the Royal Logistic Corps in April 1993, now part of 11 EOD Regt. It had its Headquarters at Thiepval Barracks in Lisburn, the unit covering the entire province of Northern Ireland. The unit is honoured at the Palace Barracks memorial garden and today remains the most decorated unit in the British Army.  With some copy regimental details. Extremely fine
