going back a good many years ,i used to escort prisoners to beilefeld, there was a military prison there, , does anyone else on site remember the place, men were sent there instead of colchester, an evil place indeed. i cant seem to find anyone else who remembers it, ginger

I know some guys were sent to Krefeld, 7 Sigs to be precise. One really nice guy refused to soldier because he got religion. Was sent there and he was "cured".

Think I mentioned before I was born in Colchester, my old man was in the MPSC at 'The Nick', and then we lived at Shepton Mallet, he was at the Nick again - on the outside looking in.

My old man, took a little spell in the MPSC from 1947 to 1954, between infantry service in the Northamptonshire Regt (Someone had to do it !). Tough places those army nicks.

Whilst serving over here in the Australian Army Reserve - Provost Corps (MP's) I did a couple of weeks training at 1 Australian Military Corrective Establishment, just outside Sydney. That was a tough little place too, but not as tough as the British Army 'Nicks' I bet.

Now the box of worms has been opened, any of you blokes do time in the 'Nick.' farao
