    Can you list the gongs @Rover? Off the top of my head, without googling, I can see the Pingat Jasa (Korea/Malaysia) and assume that's one or both of the clasps on the 1962 General Service Medal. The RN Long Service & Good Conduct Medal. Is there Suez, Borneo or Aden in the group?

    Youch. From a collector's perspective, that group would be worth a great deal...and rightly so.

    Anyone who ever came across Gilly has a dit or two to tell. Combined with his comments
    known as Gillyisms these are priceless.;)

    The SBS motto of ‘Not by Strength by Guile’ was also translated to ‘Not by Strength by Gilly’. :cool:
