I spent most of my national service at Locking in 1957/58. Although I was glad when my two years in the service ended I have mainly fond memories of the time I spent at Locking. I completed a course as a Ground Radar Fitter. with the rank of Junior Technician. I then stayed on as an instructor. I remember getting a pass out most weekends and getting a coach to White City on Saturday.. The return coach left White City around midnight on Sunday arriving back at Locking around 4.30. am.
I always thought the eight or nine month course at Lockng was very good, even for those without any electrical background. Having charge of a hut of trainees was not too onerous.
The most memorable class I had was one of Iranian, or Persion as I think we called them, officers. Fortunately they spoke English to some degree whereas I knew nothing of their language.

From the left. I'm five. Seven is Brian Witshire. Nine is Barry Means. Twelve is Dave Flux.
I'd love to know the name of No. eleven. I met him decades later and I didn't place him, and nor him me.

I believe that my father is 7th from the left with glasses. Harvey Millan. Can anyone verify that?

Likely looking lads Don, any names? or have the mists of time taken their toll?
