Roll of Honour: 
Cpl. Ronald Edwards was killed after Nos 5 and 1 Commando had merged to form 1/5 Commando.
 
"The funeral was of one of our colleagues whose life came to a tragic end when he fell from quarters in Kowloon. I am not sure whether it was Mody Road but it was thereabouts. He was buried at Happy Valley Ceremony with full honours. I did attend and am somewhere amongst the others in the picture at the cemetery."
