That's a couple of rows back from us. Do you remember your unit number? Ours was C8-10, also at the end of the block near the toilets. Our name was Houston, we lived there from March till November 1964.

Hi. We left on 29th Feb 1964, so in all possibility you could have gone into the hut we vacated. I knew that Mr Lawrence died shortly after Geoffrey. I believe that he took his own life. I'm not sure if this is accurate but I do remember hearing that that is what happened.
