Memory: I Should've Known Better

I have literally thousands of memories of the lads but certainly one of the most important is the following. Serving in the British Army in Borneo in 1965 I noticed that children knew almost no english.There was no television nor newspapers but there was radio.Whilst walking through a jungle clearing with some friends I was amazed to see and hear a group of children sat in a circle holding hands singing "I Should Have Known Better". We stopped to listen and when they had finished we clapped them, they smiled at us and said one word - BEATLES! I was astonished and moved then and still am whenever I recall this memory.

Male, 64 North East England
