Hill The The Long Distance Runner

A Memory of Bristol

I was stationed at Chilwell barracks near Nottingham in 1953. There was a very tall lad in my barracks by the name of Hill. he came from Bristol a place I have never been to. He was a long distance runner in civvy street. We haven't met since I was demobbed in September 1953. I know he was very friendly with a lad from Kent while doing his service and we had many conversations during out time there. I cannot recall his first name. It would be nice to hear how he is getting along now we are both old age pensioners. Les May   e-mail  lsmy59@aol.com
