More about this scene

Parked outside Timothy Whites (left) is a 1954 Austin A40 Cambridge saloon. There were over 600 Timothy Whites chemists across the UK. In 1968, Timothy Whites was purchased by Boots, the self-service chemist. This premises is now a fashion shop. Today, Union Street is pedestrianised and home to many clothes shops and some antique shops. The occasional soldier can still be seen marching down the street.

Memories of Aldershot, Union Street c1965

I met Elizabeth Sewell while we were both on a Territorial Army training exercise at Aldershot. We were both serving with 39 Signal Regiment. It was April 1970 and I first saw her in her WRAC uniform, green beret and brown boots! Very nice too! I managed to sit next to her in the back of a three tonner on the way back to our barracks and we talked all the way. We arranged a date for that evening and slipped out of the barracks to visit a pub. We have now been married for 37 years!
