Army Life In Lindford

A Memory of Bordon

We lived in Lindford when I was about 11 years old in 1972. My father was in the army and was based in Londmore, but we lived in the corner plot, opposite the farm, in Windsor Road. I have many very happy memories of Lindford: Weyford Junior School, where I was one of the children who were the first to use the new part of the School. Mrs. Marrack , who was referred to by the children as "Ma'am, was a lovely lady. Many hours were spent playing down by the river by the School, and on one occasion, my young brother fell in from the pipe, fully clothed!! I remember the Spar Shop and The Parade. I have been back to see my old house several times over the years, and I now live in Essex with my husband and 2 boys. Having moved to several places with the army, I would say that Lindford was my favourite. Happy memories.

I lived in Taylors Lane after the army sold all the houses. I lived in Lindford from about 78-to 1992, I then moved to Sweden. I have been here ever since. Remember Mrs Jones in the Spar.
