What Happened To:
Ken Hart
I joined the AAJLR in September 1959 and left in December 1960 - the longest ten years of my life.
After 'R' Company I served in Alamein Platoon (or Troop as it was then).
I was in the Royal Signals and when I left Tonfanau I had reached the dizzy heights of Junior Signalman. Given my military prowess I think I was lucky to achieve that!
I got my ACE2 in 'R' Company and had my ACE1 in six subjects at the end of my second term.
My athletic achievements were nil! I shall most probably be remembered as the one on the Cader 'walks' who was just in front of the guy with the broken leg and crutches. And sometimes I even found that difficult.
Having done my time and reached T2 Corporal I got out as soon as I could. My army career wasn't helped by the fact that I spent almost all of my time attached to 19 Regiment, R.A.
In civvy street I joined DER as a television repairman for a couple of years but this was 6 days a week and the pay was rubbish.
I then got a job as an agent and then auditor with the Prudential Assurance Company Limited for whom I work for 30 years.
In that time I was married, had two children and divorced.
Around the time the Pru was downsizing I met my second wife who is Canadian.
So having taken an early pension I packed my bags and headed for Edmonton, Canada - which for a man who hates the cold is a very strange place to be!!!
I then worked as the National Controller Trainer for the largest (was British but now) Canadian owned security company until I finally retired for good.
So there you have it... not very exciting but it has paid for me to travel round the world. I have a lovely wife and comfortable home so I don't suppose I can complain... although my wife may disagree with that.
