Sunnyhill Camp, Sunnyhill, Derby. - a Memory of Derby.

Would love to hear from anybody with memories of Sunnyhill Camp, Sunnyhill, Derby, now I believe called Staunton Avenue or road. I lived with my parents at number 14, my Father was a police officer with the army department constabulary, now known as the MOD police. He worked at the depot in Sinfin Lane. I lived there from 1959 - 1961. The old army camp was still there then, opposite the white houses, and as children we enjoyed playing in the derelict buildings, I still have the scars to prove it. Would particularly like to hear from Peter Smith who was a great pal of mine and lived at number 13, and the Burman or Robinson families who were neighbours and friends.
