Icicles Mathews Terrace, Aldershot 1981

Icicles Mathews Terrace, Aldershot 1981
Icicles hanging from the roof of our married quarter in Aldershot. Outside notwithstanding, the house was really cosy inside!

This was our first married quarter in the army and we were extremely lucky to be allocated it rather than one of the Poulson slums of the 1960s such as Salamanca Park or Willems Park mostly, if not all now demolished. Built in the 1920s, I kept one of the original brass key discs which was stamped "WD" with the government arrow, and "19 Ordnance Barracks", so I couldn't say when it became Mathews Terrace.

It was a fierce winter. I used to walk my wife, then pregnant, to work to make sure she got there safely.
