As luck would have it I drove past Bovington this afternoon - I used to live there in the '70s as a Pad Brat, as I passed Woolbridge I thought I'd take a trip down memory lane so I turned left and bimbled through camp. We used to live in Elles Road (Number 31 if I remember correctly) which I found easily enough. What has happened? Is it no longer a 'Patch'? The sorts of folk and types of motor car inhabiting the place had a very 'odd ring' to it. Happy days. My father worked at the first BAGTIT built in the old NAAFI - I painted the Landrover Hulks and arranged the camouflage netting etc as well as painting hundreds of brass rings red and blue for the mapboard. I had a holiday job as a storeman in 3(?) Field Workshops once and in another worked in Fortes on the seafront in Weymouth. I used to cycle to Wool Station and jump on the train.
