Thanks, and thanks for your note via LinkedIn.
I promised to send some more material for the website. I scanned all the archive material held at Halton on the 210th – there is not very much – and I will send it in bite-sized chunks for you to use as you see fit. If nothing else, the nominal roll might help put names to faces in the large pre-passing out photo at the top of the website.
The attachments are the initial training (induction) programme for early September 1967. The covering loose minute is very faint but readable, and the programme itself is a scanned A3-sized sheet so is a bit of a puzzle to read, but it is all there. It makes the hairs stand up on the back of my neck!
thanks for sending these. I am sure the 210 exbrats will also have the hairs on the back of there necks standing to attention.
Talking of hair reminds me of a story.
I remember having my haircut really short before arriving at Halton, it was the shortest it had ever been. I remember queuing up outside the barber and seeing the faces of the guys coming out and thinking I had nothing to take off. How wrong I was as the camp barber seemed to relish in getting “my monies-worth”. I have just had it cut in the same style but with having a little less on top and being a lot older, I look like Magwitch from Great Expectations. He was the not so good looking one in the graveyard.
I converted the files to jpegs for ease of viewing and if anyone wants to download the originals then the PDF file is above under Dusty’s note. I have put the Induction Programme on another page.
