Royal Engineers Printing Unit - a Memory of Latimer.

I was a member of the small printing unit at JSSC during my National Service. Our job was to print the material for the Combined Services Officers course on Atomic Warfare. The Officers were from all the Commonwealth countries and mostly from the higher ranks. The Commandant of the camp was Lt. Col Acland and the Adjutant was a Major Reynolds. The officers were billeted in Latimer House and the other ranks in ten small huts about a half mile away along a lovely country road. This road was open to the public. My memories of JSSC are fond ones, and I often think back how lucky I was to get this posting.
