CVHQ RCT (Central Volunteer Headquarters Royal Corps of Transport) was located at Grange Camp, Kempston, Bedford. This photo was taken at Summer Camp 1970 or 1971 and shows some fearsome armed volunteers including a very young Class31 I would be hard pressed to name the others in the photo.

The privately owned Bedfordshire Middle Class Public School. It changed it's name to The County School and finally to Elstow School before it closed in 1916. The old school buildings were used by Cosmic Crayon Company until 1964 when they were knocked down and replaced by the offices of Robinson Rentals, now Granada TV Rentals.

The Meltis chocolate factory is just below the centre of the photo. My mum worked there for a while and one day one of her work colleagues dropped her false teeth in the chocolate mixing bowl. She scooped them out, popped them back in her mouth and carried on working! Perhaps that's why I preferred Meltis New Berry Fruits.
