Childhood - a Memory of Anthorn.

I lived at the base with my parents my father was inspector in the naval police we had a bungalow just inside the main gates. I went to school in bowness a bus picked us up and dropped us off. in the evenings I was allowed to ride my bike and play on the airfields when the sirens had sounded which was around 6 oclock, then all the naval workforce left the airfield and returned to the barracks. my friends were from the near by farms where I spent lots of time. iremember a conger eel being washed up on the firth I have never seen any thing so big. I was also friends with the admirals daughter and often got invited to tea at the admirals house which I remember was situated on the airfield. they were lovely days. we left there in 1956 to live in wales at another naval establishment.
