January 1983 and a bitterly cold Prince William of Gloucester Barracks. One of the lads brought a classy young lady back from a night out in "G" town. There must have been 20 of us in that room but she didn't mind putting on a morale boosting show for the troops......kind of like an ENSA thing I suppose. When asked if she might help out some of the other lads, she was more than happy to oblige. "Chalky", her gallant new suitor was rather old fashioned and less than keen. Anyhow, "Chalky" attempted to sneak her back out but got caught. By all accounts, she sensed a morale problem in the guardroom but managed to resolve that much to everyone's satisfaction. Well, imagine my surprise when standing on the platform waiting for my train to Leeds, I glanced across to the Southbound platform to see loves young dream, "Chalky" and the very same "English Rose" about to board a train to London. I do hope there was a happy ending.

Worked with a young lady whose RAAF boyfriend had been at ADFA. She told me about how she avoided being found during a room inspection by hiding under his bed in his tin trunk.

The story didn't make a lot of sense - Dutch passport / Far East birth = Indonesian I'd guess and she was allowed to leave...

From The Times on Saturday ...
A Navy source said "If he had applied for permission for her to stay and asked for a family cabin he would probably have been able to after the completion of background checks ..."
Does this mean there are now family accommodation facilities in Barrack blocks? Or is this just loose terminology?
