Gordon Poultney Photo Album
National Service 1976 - Internal Affairs

These images were scanned from old 35 mm prints taken with a fixed-lens Kodak Retina so apologies in advance for some of the poor quality.
The photos show the passing-out parade at the end of basic training at Chikurubi Barracks and the subsequent year of service in the
Mount Darwin district.  For written details of this time please see National Service 1976
