Donkey Mail and Bully Beef
By Maurice Evlyn-Bufton
Maurice Evlyn-Bufton was a Captain in the and a second in command of the operation overseeing the south bank of Gorazde. He has returned 3 times to the town since 1995, and has established a charity in remembrance of the four comrades killed on this tour.
In September 1994, the 1st Battalion The Royal Gloucestershire Berkshire and Wiltshire Regiment entered Gorazde, Central Bosnia. In the coming six months of their operation tour, the soldiers and officers of the battalion experienced tragedy and adversity, but laughter and camaraderie also. Despite being ill-equipped, poorly supported and isolated, the battalion saw through the winter months and achieved the military and humanitarian objectives.
