Last night being bored I searched Google for an old campsite.
This picture shows a nice green area outside Wormwood scrubs Prison.
Back in 1958 That green grass was Gunsite Army Camp. Part of our duty there was Guard duty. We were told that when we were on patrol pay Extra attention to the prison walls, which was also our camp wall. Because it was over this wall prisoners make their escape. We laughed because walking under that wall which was about 30 – 40 feet high. It seemed escape was not an option.
I remember one night I was on guard duty on Main gate. It was my first time on the gate. I was to book vehicles in and out. After about an hour it was getting dark and I couldn’t see the clipboard. and inside the guard box was a switch. Ha! that’s a light switch . I pressed it.
ALL Hell broke out. I could hear the guard commander shouting call out the guard. A siren was screaming. Lights came on along the perimeter. suddenly I was surrounded by the rest of the guard duty. I was being screamed at by the Orderly Officer. Whats the situation soldier? he was shouting at me. I don’t know I stammered. But you sounded the alarm is there an escape underway?.. After a few minutes it was stand down and i was hauled away. My only excuse was there was no warning in the sentry box that the switch was an alarm call. Also there was no light in it either. it seemed someone listened because I got no further action and later a warning plate in red was inserted and yes a light was installed.
Later on I am off to my Chiro practic
OK back from chiro now. What a difference. It’s not perfect but it is easier. Got appointment for next week just to keep an eye on it.
Trying to add some new appointments to my diary I realised that with all mavis`s appointments my appointments rallies ,things todo the list was enormous. So I have now broken this lot down into separate diaries. I must see how it works now…
