The location as I remember at 1 T.R. the Technical Maintenance Troops' teleprinter workshop which was (at that time) straight in from Camp Centre, past the education centre past the squadron office and past the NAAFI and then around to the left
The generator room was next to the workshop and across the road on the lefthand side was the radio workshop and the C.O.s office. The C.O. had a civilian assistant a Mr. Frarey I think. I can't remember the C.O.s name.
Last time I was there in 1986 most of Loos Lines had gone.
