RAF Pucklechurch in 1954
Written by philip lovellGreat base, just outside Bristol. 400 airmen & 200 WRAFs. Camp dances attracted coachloads of Bristol girls so lots of romances developed. I had a very good time, playing football for camp and setting up jazz club. My immediate boss, Warrant Officer Sambrook was a bit of a tartar but a good guy at heart. I made a lot of good friends and am still in touch with some of them and also some of my old Bristol girlfriends. Demobbed in March 1954 and really missed the comradeship. Thought about signing on but went into banking instead which was, probably, the right decision but, looking back, they were a great two years and I wouldn't have missed the experience.
