Memories of Burstow
I would be interested to hear from anyone who has photos and any info on Burstow Barracks during 1881 - 1911. My ancestors William & Sarah Carman lived here during these times and were buried at Burstow Church.
I was in the cubs at Smallfield and I remember carrying a flag in a Saint George's Day parade to the Burstow Parish Church. Cubs met in the village hall at Smallfield, the same hall we ate our school lunches in, half a mile from the Smallfield County Primary School. The school was half a mile out Redehall Road towards Burstow, and we lived another half mile past the school, on Red Road. I would do Bob A Job week around Burstow, calling at the Hall and at the few other houses in the area.
