Info on SSM Col Yates

I heard two rumours about Col Yates, one he was a car salesman in America (unlikely) and the other that he got cancer and died (also unlikely, I cannot see anything ever daring to kill him!). Can anybody shed any light on what really happened to him?



col yates is on my facebook friends . currently a police officer in Idaho usa

Excellent news, I had always thought that the cancer story was factual. good to hear that he's alive and well. aye,

Does anyone that served in Singapore have any records about sqn members time spent in malaya and borneo and on what projects or stear us in the right direction for this info please, between Jan 1966 and August 66. Its very important thank you.
