Army Apprentice College Harrogate, in 1964
Written by Stan EdwardsJoining up on May 12th 1964. Leaving Walsall train station on my own leaving me and my family in tears. Changed station at Leeds for Harrogate then picked up by army mini bus. Off to Pennypot Lane (never forget that road !). To Hildebrand Barracks to the infamous wooden spider huts ! Do I regret it? The first 16 weeks, YES !! But it taught me a little bit of discipline.
