If I remember correctly the old 'West' wing of the mess collapsed when the CO of the regiment taking over from us decided to have a lot of the internal walls removed to make bigger suites for his officers! The resultant crash in the middle of the night was quite alarming! Then because that wing had to be completely removed he had the other one knocked down as well to keep it symmetrical.

Unfortunately my only memory of the CFI (JL) during my stay was standing to attention looking over his shoulder out of the nice panoramic windows whilst receiving a 'talking to'. However, I did learn never to let go of the collective whilst someone was climbing out of the other seat in a Whirlwind!
