I did my national service training at hadrians camp june 51 -oct 51. I took part in the military tattoo during the festival of britain (dressed as a zulu). What a time.
I served in Hadrians Camp from Jan '62-Dec '64 and still have a mixture of memories from there. Hearing of its demise I can only feel sad for the new home owners who will have the ghosts of the Roman Legions running amock in their houses.
