Old Maps of Compton Bassett

Historic Maps of Compton Bassett and the local area.

I was at Compton in 1955 on the TPO course and again in 1956 on the Wireless course, loved the time I spent there and am still in touch with some of the Wraf friends I met there, they were good times.

Was Sgt Barraclough an instructor in the teleprinter and tape-relay sections - who lived just across the road in the married quarters? (name rings bell ) but it was a long time ago - 1957
