Fond Memories Of Jssc And Lattimer House And Old Friends - a Memory of Latimer.

I was posted to Latimer in 1954 from Hadrians Camp, Carlisle, and after walking from Little Chalfont Station with full kit it was great to walk into the guardroom and have someone stick a mug of tea in my hand, Corpral Homer MM.
I also remember CSM Wacky Jones Major "DEBBIE " Renolds and many others from all services including WRAC, it was a great posting. I met my wife to be at one of the Officers Mess Balls, I was wine waiter, she was ladies cloak room attendant. We married November 1955 and were together 55 years.
I wonder how many of the old gang are still around and if they ever get together down at the Queens Arms in Chesham. I remember one of the WRAC girls named Louise who met and married a local farmer around the time that my Joy and I got together, also Chris Kyvernites, Phil Lewis, Paddy Mcaffrey and Charlie Bailey whose mate carried him back from a Christmas Dance only to drop him down the steps to their barrack block and break his leg .
Is my old mate Tommy Rose still with us ,and if so does he remember Jim Barnes crawling all the way down the drive when he thought he had lost his false teeth? He ruined his best uniform only to find next day that his teeth were in the loo.
If any of the people we served with are still around maybe we could arrange to communicate and share memories.
