59 years ago to this day(3 Dec)I accompanied by Dave Thorn were on a steam train travelling to Plymouth Crown Hill Barracks to join the Infantry Junior Leaders Bn.
my first day was quite eventful. I was threatened by this huge geordie lad, who wanted the bed space I was occupying. When I said it was mine as I was here first, back came the answer what are you going to do about it. With my dads advice of dont be bullied in my head. I hit this geordie as hard as I could. He went over a bed got up and muttered about keep the bedspace. I never had any trouble during the next 2 years at IJLB. But I have never been so scared in my life.
