THE BURNING OF ST GEORGE’S – WHEN?
On page 12 in the article Bible To Barber it is stated that the Church was burnt down in 1959. The Church was actually burn down in i960 just after I had passed out with the 86th Entry. I was posted to Aden and went on Embarkation leave and returned to Halton at the end of my leave. It was then I heard that the church had burnt down that would have been about the middle of May i960.
I would have thought that the incident would be recorded in the Station History and the actual date was well known.
Roger Brooks 86th
