 "On posting to the Gurkha Engineers in Kluang in 1963, Captain Tomlinson was presented with a Wilkinson sword by his parents - as required then by the Gurkha Engineers. On one side of the blade was etched in the RE custom, and on the other side with the Gurkha Engineers badge, where by the sword was unique. On leaving the army in 1992 Tomlinson presented the sword and all its accoutrements to the RE Museum for safe keeping. It can no longer be found. Anyone knowing of its whereabouts should kindly arrange its return to the Museum. It may then be used on temporary loan to any QGE Queen's Gurkha Orderly Officer for use on duty during his Orderly Officer tour."
