Army Catering Corp, NCO’s Course Cyprus in 1956
written by Thomas Bowles



Flying from Benghazi to Cyprus in a rattley airplane and being transported to out training camp in a coach with wire mesh over windows and armed guards aboard, our blokes done a great job there, then being under canvas at the teaching camp. we were taught drilling on parade, shouting orders etc, plus Hospital cookery course B2 for my posting in BMH Benghazi, I was there longer than expected due to bomb scares etc, so after the training we done more guard duties plus escort duties, then back to BMH Benghazi, during my time at BMH I was best man at Corpral Hamiltons Wedding to a nurse named June, then later on there was a cookery competion for the ACC in Cyrenaica then, now Libya, and I was entered for the Hospital BMH, for the INdividual Privates competition and I won, 295 points out of a possible 300, think my custard was a bit too runny or some thing, ha ha ha, anyway got the cup, which ended up in the Sgts/oficers mess... not very exciting but good memories though.
