Just thinking, "Toc" we know as Tango, "H" we know as Hotel.
I suspect "Pip" may've become our Papa and "Emma" our Mike.
Does anyone know what the complete phonetic alphabet was in WW1 ?
Or WW2, come to think of it.

My enduring memory of Toc H was during basic training in Blandford (summer of '56)
After a session of "Square bashing" we were allowed a few minutes in the Toc H hut where I used to make a beeline for a couple of their fantastic Cream Slices and a cuppa.
Incidently, my great grandfather's house in Ashby (Leics.) is the local Toc H premises.

Hi, only my 2nd post here, I have very fond memories of the Toc H at the Junior Tradesman's Regiment at Troon in Ayrshire back in 1965/66 where I originally trained as a Driver Clerk.

Big Mugs of Camp Coffee and a Blue Ribband were the order of the day for Morning Break or just when ever we could get there. The Girls that ran it were so kind to us young lads, and spoiled us more than once. The service there was just so much better than the NAFFI. Like many units at the time we had both. Sadly I got posted to York Barracks in Munster in '65 which did not have a TOC H back then, just the NAFFI, and then I was re mustered at 224 Signal Sqn Loughborough, which again sadly did not have a TOC H. In fact Troon was the last Army posting where I saw them.

Cool, but we were training for the Y Service Branch, now GCHQ and we were not really allowed to venture that far, though of course nothing was in writing, it was just an unwritten rule that we could go to Woodhouse, the local village and anywhere really close but 'they' were not keen once we had been positively vetted, socialising further away. Plenty did, but sadly I did not. Woodhouse though was lovely and the locals were very nice to us, especially the publican's who knew exactly when and how much we were paid back then.

I remember the Stonk Club by Napier barracks. And another Toc H in a windmill on an autobahn. Memory is fuzzy.

I used to love stopping off at the 'Windmill' for a cuppa and a roll + biscuits. They also had a trinkets/souveniers shop.  

1946 -1971  Located: Rastaette 'Vellern' on the A2 Autobahn Nr Beckum.

Wow I missed the Windmill, but I was barely 18 when I was sent to 13 Signal Reg way up north by the Dutch border and did not have a car back then. 13 Sigs was a wonderful camp with everything, Cinema, Swimming Pool, fantastic NAFFI and Shop, but sadly no Toc H or YMCA.

The shift work, days/nights was rather demanding for a youngster so I did not travel far from Camp but the locals were wonderful as indeed was the country side. I fell in love for the very first time there with a Girl Called Sue Rennie from Dundee. I wonder what became of her. She was a WRAC in the Intelligence corps if I remember right.

After several months of decoding high speed morse code on a mechanical typewriter, I cracked up and was sent back to the UK for remuster. I decided the Army life was not for me and promoted myself to Mister after just 6 years service.
