Hi, I'm new at this, but would like to reply to your message on page 5 regarding the first foot patrol in to the crater in 1966. You mentioned fusilier J. Collinson (ex provist sgt). John Collinson is my stepfather! I've shown him this website and he has enjoyed reading all the posts and photographs. He remembers his time there with great clarity, recalling most of his fellow soldiers. He also recalls the floods. He would like to contact L/cp Peter Madison, if anyone knows of him or could us find him. He would also like to attend any get together soon. Many Thanks.

Hi Mandy,I didn't know J Collinson but there is a John Madderson on facebook that might have known him,he joined the Northumberland Fusiliers in 1964 so there is a chance he knows someone who knows him.The floods washed all the make shift homes off the sides of the hills.
