67 Training Regiment, RA, Oswestrey
And so it was I reported to 67th Regiment RA at Park Hall Camp, Oswestry, Salop, on 4th October 1951 where I was allotted to Group No. 51.19 and given my army number 22597046. The next fortnight was spent doing basic drills on the parade square, “spit and polish” and generally being shouted at. I found that by keeping a low profile, I did not attract the NCO’s attention. It was here that the group commenced receiving a series of injections, some of which made you feel quite groggy. The army, thoughtful as ever, gave these on a Friday so that we could recover lying on our beds in our own time!
