Royal Signals 1954 56 Grand Depot Road - a Memory of Woolwich.

Hi there, I wonder if anyone remembers a coffe house in Woolwich - all the solders on demob pinned their shoulder flashes on the wall - it was coverd in them. We were stationed at Connaught Baracks. It was said to be Flo Nightingale place that she trianed her nurses. The Hexagon bulding at the end of Grand Depot Road and Herbert Road was the mortuary. We were no 1 War Office Signal Squadron, any contact welcome, Ken.
