My Time 1952 - a Memory of Latimer.

I have some lovely nostalgic memories of the J.S.S.C Latimer, where I was stationed in 1952.  Most of the period I was a provost policeman.  There were 3 of us and a provost corporal, cpl Burrows, [I believe came from Wiltshire].  There was no R.S.M, but a warrent officer, [I forgot his name], also a camp commondant colonol Ackland, under him, major Hickey.  The food was wonderful, the guys and gals terrific.  My sleeping quarters was in the rear of the guardroom.  (Does anyone have any pics of the guardroom or that area?)  We had a cinema on site and a small snooker room.  On one occasion I did some 'waiting' on at an officers gathering and got p---ed stupid, but I could hold my ale and no one could tell.  Wonderful days, would anyone like to elaborate?.  Best wishes to all.

Phil.
