“ Without warning the Turks invaded Cyprus ”
As a member of 103MU at the time of the invasion I (as did all the UK service personal) had to send our families home to UK and remain behind to protect the bases etc. This was a 12 month stint for most of us out of the blue, the trauma to our families and the on going tension on the bases and assistance to the Royal Scots and Ghurka regiments put us on a Defence footing. I would call this Service for our country.
