READING your article 'Barracks welcomes back Royal Fusiliers' (Chronicle, April 17) brought back memories of my national service days and the many comrades and NCOs I befriended during my posting of 14 months at the Tower of London.
I was in the Army Catering Corps and was posted to the Royal Fusiliers Depot at Hounslow in April 1949.
I had been there for just two weeks when the depot moved to the Tower of London.
In the early summer of 1949 the Royal Fusiliers brought a detachment from Germany to cover the ceremonial 'twenty-four guard' on a Sunday at the Tower, which was a memorable occasion for all of us.
Some of my comrades were Tommy Lambe, Sgt Jimmy Crofton, Colour Sgt Dusty Miller and Maj Rolfe.
I hope your article will prompt other comrades from this memorable time to write in with their experiences as well.
