Thanks to Lynne Narbett for these photos, Lynne said in the Guest Book "Our family lived in Bermuda Road opposite Aggie Westons, near the main gate of the Naval Base from mid 1966 - mid 1969. My father was an MOD Police Inspector at the Base. I went to the RN school for the first year and then Bourne School (Alexandra section) for the remainder."
