RAF Stoke Heath in 1953

Written by John Mochrie

I served here from 1953 to 1955 on my demob. Worked in the Station Orderly Room. We all had bycycles to ride from one site to the other. We were charged if we did not dismount at the road signs and follow the instructions! The camp was over a number of sites. The local town was Market Drayton which did not offer much so we went to the BIG town of Shrewsbury were we met some of the Army boys and often fights started up. Not much money as I earned about £1.25p a week. My trade so a typist but I was a male an no females on camp. Any body around still at that time in Stoke Heath?
