Went to Long Marston from 8 TR RE Elgin. Was put on Storeman tech course Sgt Tristram in charge. I came out top of the class, went on a cadre course for one tape and acted as assistant tutor. When the Sgnt was demobbed, I got a further tape ( after another cadre) and was put in charge of the Storeman tech course.
One break when I volunteered for an airborne course which took me to Aldershot and Upper Heyford.
One enormous camp with own railway and locomotives.
My squadron (B) was ruled by SSM Crozier, a dour Scot but very fair.
The RSM was called Pavey, a frightening figure.
