What was the name of the Bar we used downtown Nicosia prior to the
Green Line introduction?
When Transport Command crews were accommodated in the Ledra Palace Hotel during the summer of 1958 we always used a nearby bar whish ISTR looked out over open ground near city edge. I do know it was owned by a well known EOKA terrorist called Nicos Sampson who was in prison at that time. It would make sense if it was eventually placed out of bounds.
I must admit we had some very good crew p*ss ups there and the staff were alway very friendly with generous offerings of the local Grappa they called the heart of the vine.
Nicos Sampson
