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

I was part of the Royal Engineers Akrotiri mole project team in 1971 when we took over the officers yacht club. There was only 12 of us originally but we had about 20 royal engineers every 3 months come out from uk to help and assist. Myself and my mate Wally Telfer did all the drilling and blasting for the mole. We kept all our explosives in the RAF bomb dump and became friends with many RAF personnel. Our accommodation was an old WAF block opposite the Turkish barbers shop. Many memories of Akrotiri but only 1 photo. When we left Cyprus in 73 I think, I was posted to 49 EOD Bomb disposal, a reward for working with explosives for 3 years. After 50 years now I would still love to go back . Maybe one.

I lived briefly in Berengaria Village in 1952 and was in the 51st Cyprus Boy Scouts
I think it was a turning point in my life and didnt want to return to cold old England, now live in the Tropics of North Queenland. Absolutely loved Cyprus even though I was only 8 years old. Dad was in the RAF and when the Greeks and Turks started fighting it was decided to send us back to England. At one stage I seem to remember a house in Berengaria being blown up. I do recollect the camp being fenced off with rolls of barb wire and I think my Father was rostered to patrol the wire. we lived in 5 Olive Grove. Just recently been doing a bit of Family historyfor my younger sister, identifying areas where we lived and lokked on Google Earth for Berengaria Village and saw it was all demolished but could still pick out the roads, very surprised how all of the surrounding area has been built upon, which all used to be natural bush.
