Lt Bennett, the first OC 45 Commando Air Troop, excitedly views the Auster crate that the AAC kindly donated to the Air Troop at Aden as their Crewroom. A lack of electricity, air conditioning and lighting made it 'challenging' until Capt Terrence Murphy RM (temporarily detached from Middle Wallop where he was an instructor) helped out. After 'liaison' with the AAC Boss the Troop had the best accommodation at Falaise Airfield.
