One Of My Earliest Memories . . .

I too lived in Ramillies Park between 1969 and 1971 (185 Ramillies Park,) and went to Talavera.

Aldershot Lido

I used to swim here every summer, one of my best memories of relaxed swimming, the 'Slippery dip' slide and sun bathing. I remember there was a canteen where we used to buy icecreams and wandering around the grassey grounds - This made the 70s summer for me!

It was only recently that my eldest daughter (17) asked where I was born, I told her of this place, she asked if the place still stands to which I told her no. She asked about the Cambridge Military Hospital and I told her all I know about the once majestic building, its role in history and its role in our ...Read full memory

Tonsils, Broken Arm And Two Children

First visit in 1957 - tonsils out, next time in 1959 - a broken arm. Then I had my two children there in 1970 & 1974. It was too small for my appendicitis; they took me to Farnham for that in 1961 and put me in the women's ward.
