Blenheim Barracks - a Memory of Aldershot.
My dad was Lt Col Smith, commanding officer of Blenheim Barracks. We lived in Blenheim House (now demolished) in the late 1950s and as kids would watch the parades held every Tuesday on the ground at the top of Queens Avenue. It is now the playground of the school which was built there. I went to school in Queens Road and my brother and I would cycle down the Farnborough Road and back every day!! The traffic was not so heavy then! When my dad retired we moved to Fleet in around 1960 where I lived till the 1980s. I worked in Aldershot during the 60s.
