I’m writing a history of Military detention in Colchester from 1947 onwards, focusing specifically on what is now the MCTC. Maybe you were a member of staff, a detainee or a member of the forces who escorted someone here? Perhaps you came to visit someone or had some other connection? However small or irrelevant you think your memory might be please contact Carole on: saahera@tiscali.co.uk. or phone 01621 869567. All information will be treated in confidence; your name will only be mentioned if you want it to be.  

Thanking you in anticipation


Best wishes
