When on February 8, 1961, the MV King Arthur steamed out of Liverpool the sailors on-board the freighter couldn’t have known that one of their ports of call would be the scene of The British Empire’s Last Battle.

In the 1960s Aden’s Crater District, so named as the Arab community nestles in the centre of an extinct volcano, was the last place for a European to be. Such was the Yemeni hatred for their British occupiers that only heavily armed patrols dared to venture into the forbidden hillside Kasbahs. There were situated a warren of hovels where the impoverished Arab community barely survived in the most desperate conditions.


When in late 1962 during the Aden Emergency a patrol of British Army troops did venture into the Crater District over 20 were ambushed and slain.


Aden was a grimy scattering of apartment blocks and buildings, a truly unhealthy place for Europeans to wander. However, such was our faith and innocence we two Jack Tars decided to see if the Crater District was as bad as media claimed it to be.  Long after nightfall, we wandered among the hovels like tourists. Having satisfied our curiosity we then strolled back down towards the port area.

As me and Glaswegian Jock Smart figured a way through the deserted town we encountered a British Army foot patrol. It took some interrogation for the troops to realise that we weren’t off duty servicemen but were sailors.

Michael Walsh was an 18-year old Junior Ordinary Seaman when he visited Aden’s notorious Crater District.

As we explained our stroll through the infamous Crater District, the armed and uniformed soldiers looked at each other in disbelief.  It was beyond belief that we had been foolish enough to venture there and we were considered lucky to have returned alive. When six years later and 128 years of occupation numerous guerrilla attacks drove the last British troops from Aden the last post was sounded over the British Empire.

Interestingly, the only figure of note to venture into the Crater District and bring calm to the terrorist-infested Kasbah was the extraordinary Colonel Colin (Mad Mitch) of the Argyll and Southern Highlanders.

The heroic officer, a veteran of numerous conflicts throughout the British Empire was hero-worshipped by tens of millions of Britons who regarded the dashing Mad Mitch as highly as they did Lawrence of Arabia, also an anti-Westminster rebel.

Colonel Mad Mitch saw action in Palestine, where he fought the Jewish terrorists and captured terrorist Moshe Shertock, future Israeli Prime Minister. The fiery colonel witnessed the Jewish terrorist bomb outrage that levelled the King David Hotel in 1946 with the loss of 91 mostly British lives.


In 1950 Colonel Mad Mitch was voluntarily fighting in near Siberian conditions in Korea. The colonel saw frontline action in Cyprus, East Africa from Zanzibar to Sudan, was instrumental in getting a commission for Idi Amin, future president of Uganda. Wounded on several occasions, one in which his helicopter was attacked by an enraged bull elephant. He served in Borneo and later became the Hero of the Last Battle of British Empire.

Since discarded by the British establishment, mainstream media has ever since tried to pour cold water on the unrivalled soldierly deeds of Colonel Mad Mitch of the Argyll and Southern Highlanders. Sadly, I and my shipmate Jock Smart remain relatively unknown but it was good to know that we had something in common with Mad Mitch; we too had clandestinely entered the God-forsaken Crater District and emerged with our lives. Many didn’t.

  • I’ve known two soldiers from different regiments who were in Aden during those closing moments of British rule. They both had very interesting stories to tell that I dare not repeat. Suffice to say that, by the snowflake standards of today, they would have both been in jail with Sgt Blackman.

  • I left Aden in March of ’67 after eighteen months, so was there during these videos. I was RAF at Khormaksar on the Argosys and Beverleys and as a result we were guarded very well by the Army. We did guard duties with the Lee Enfield .303 and carried five rounds in a clip on our person. In the event of needing to challenge someone, it was ‘Halt, Waqif’ three times after which we were allowed to actually load the rounds into the weapon. The videos highlight the Crater situation but apart from that, there wasn’t much trouble as far as we were concerned. That is in no way to minimise the difficulty the Army had. The first video mentions President Nasser of Egypt encouraging the insurgents, well a pal of mine flew back in a trio of Beverleys as they left Aden for the last time, and as the three aircraft flew over Egypt en route to El Adem in LIbya, they were rushed by Egyptian Air Force Migs and had to take avoiding action. My pal said the slow speed of the Beverlys caused the Migs to overshoot. When they landed at El Adem they were shepherded into a bus and then a room in Operations and the first words spoken to them were ‘It never happened’.
