More about this scene

On a fine summer's day, these bungalows must have looked ideal to the prospective buyer with clean sea air and a beautiful view. Sad to say, Neptune claimed them one by one in the 1970s.

I returned from RAF service abroad and was stationed at nearby RAF Station Carnaby from mid 1945 t0 mid 1946 when I was de-mobbed. Barmston was about a once-a-week trip on station bikes to look at the sea and a couple of hours in the Black Bull.
