Happy Days - a Memory of Latimer.

Posted to JSSC Latimer in 1962. One of the first RAF cooks to arrive and to take over the OR's Mess from the Army. It was my first time on a multi service camp, but not the last. I remember that there were very few buses into Chesham and no transport to the tube station in Little Chalfont. The co op hall in Chesham for the dances 4 times a week and have a few beers in the Lamb over the road, it was a proper 4 ale and spit bar with sawdust on the floor, but the beer was fantastic straight from the barrel no pumps. Also spent a lot of time in Old Amersham Town as there were some very good pubs. Then my dreams were smashed posted to RAF El Adem in Libya
