Ladies Mile beach where we went every other weekend, Ted next door would take us if dad was on duty, in his white VW camper (sliding door open all the way. Buttons Bay I was just tall enough to have my chin out of the water and follow the white track to the little island. Happy Valley to watch my brother Kevin Grisdale playing football, he was slightly older.

Dad was the Royal Signals RQMS in Episkopi until he was demobbed back to the UK in 59. We lived at #2 Down Rise and I went to the Army Children's School. Class teacher was called Dai. He also taught Boxing and he drove a Vauxhall Victor, the one with fins at the back, a bench seat and a gear stick attached to the steering wheel. Favourite memories include the Scouts, Happy Valley (and mucking out the horses in the stables) and exploring the valley behind our house which was also used as an assault course with cardboard soldiers popping up and taking our gang by surprise.

I remember swimming here along with my sisters, dad was a fireman in the RAF, this was just before the Turks landed, it was such a happy time and hated leaving when his tour of duty ended.

Hi I am hoping for info about the climb out from the sports field in Happy Valley to the school at the top. Back in 1970 whilst serving with the UN I took part in a race to the top. Still have the certificate for this. Standard time 30 mins my time was 20:15 finished in second place. What I would like to know is what the gradient is and what height above sea level it is on the course. Thank you in advance Mike Lordy Nelson,

This was a shock, I remember this photo being taken. I spent many of my childhood days at the golf club. My dad is the one with the beard in this picture. He and his boss the guy in the black on the right smoking (his boss) designed the golf club. I?m off to Cyprus in august 2022
