I love looking at the places I have been living both in this country and abroad. Some places the differences are big. Places such as Poole and the ferry service which wasn't there in my time. Plymouth ferry also has grown bigger.
The Royal Marines Barracks at Eastney has gone. Turned in to expensive flats for the rich. Funnily enough many taken by ex Royal Marines. The only recognisable part of the barracks being the old Officers' Mess, which is now a very good Royal Marines museum. Oh yes the sports pavilion is now the home of the RM Association, well worth a visit as the beer is a bit cheaper than elsewhere in town.
But then I look at Stonehouse Barracks (Plymouth) and start thinking that some of the old RSM's would have a fit if they saw the cars parked on the parade ground.
