Dad's military career, part 2

Originally 5-7-95 letter:

All this puts me in a nostalgic mood. I remembered all the old army and war stories my father told me. He joined the Jamaica Infantry Volunteers (JIV), a militia unit, September 1944, and later, the Jamaica Regiment, First Battalion. Most of the older men that visit my parents' home are old soldiers, who "never die, they just fade away." (smile).
