Hi, We were there 1966-9. Then, Buttons Bay was known as 'Bumbles Bay' and Horsley Lane was Horsley Road. Mind you, that was last century and a different monarch, so I may be mistaken. However, it was a great 3 year honeymoon!

My dad Bill Grisdale was a chief tech in the RAF, we were in Cyprus (1970 - 74) welived in Limassol first then moved onto camp - Akrotiri. David, Linda and Kevin would have gone to st johns, I was at primary then Berengaria,we lived on Princess street, every weekend if dad was not working we would be at the beach (any beach) sometimes camping all weekend, Ladies mile, Buttons bay, Famagusta. Kevin played football at Happy vaiiey. I can remember Mrs Adel at primary school, swimming lessons in the sea near the sailing club, the massive scalextric at the youth club on camp I remember it was a 4 lane sit down race, going to school watching silver Lightning fighters going vertical.Ted next door to us had a VW white camper, when dad was working he would take us to the beach with sliding door wedged open (no health & safety then thank god, mum and dad were always at the sgt's mess, while my brothers and sister were causing havoc, I also remember a few visits by the military police to which my dad was not best pleased. but all in all what an amazing time, we've now travelled the world but I've never been back,I would like to remember those magical days as they were now that I'm the only one left to remember those memories.

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.
