Hi I know this is a long shot - a friend is asking if anyone knew an Alec Cameron who served with the HLI during the conflict in Cyprus 1955-56 - I believe that Alec has since passed and he had a web page where he listed his and the activities of the battalion during their time out there and I am told he may have published a book on their time out there - My question is does anyone know of the link to what was his web page and any ideas if he ever published his stories - His old army buddies were Jim Fury - Brian Sweeny - Billy McConologue - Jim lives in Fife - Brian in Devon and Billy in Australia - it was on the HLI Facebook page asking if anyone out there knew anything if Alec actually got his book published and more so any ex HLI boys who served with them reading this.... to post Thanks for reading this

Hi jmac

A young lad, John Beattie, who lived in Oakbank Street, Glasgow, was serving in Cyprus in the mid fifties, with the HLI. He and some other off duty soldiers were murdered by so called Greek terrorists.
Did you know John?
