Richard sent  in these videos. The first is an interview with his father, Brigadier Gordon Viner, the last British Commander of the  Federal Regular  Army  of South Arabia  (formerly the 1st Battalion, Aden Protectorate Levies).  The second video is an "ITN Roving Report  from Aden detailing the military and political situation in the mid 60"s.  Brigadier Viner is interviewed in this report as well.  Due to the size of the video file there may be some delay in playing.
