I think you are correct Davy,l am pretty sure there was a hut at the base. Of the hill ,my memory tells me that there were 2 JEWISH men,might have been brothers or father and son they both wore brown coats,one wore glasses he always wore them on the end of his nose.lthe hut was built like small hanger.lnside was alladins cave.it was all war surplus,my brother and a lad called Harry DAGLISH and myself some times work for the Jew boys as we used to call them,sorting out and folding up sand bags and doing odd jobs, in side was just a tip,l always remember the hut just stank. |
This was done in the early 50s we were paid a shilling some times 2 bob.
There were uniforms,boots,bags of buttons etc. Happy days.
