Other than access to guns and paperwork, it is not much different from the common soldier's barracks.

I wish I was a Glow Worm, a Glow Worm's never glum, 'cause how can you be grumpy, when the sun shines out your bum?

Another interesting look at the military quarters...not much of an upgrade for the officers...clear colorful capture.

Since the poster on the bulletin board shows "5 pounds", and those bunks are the telescoping type, unlike anything we had here in the U.S. during the same time, I'm guessing this exhibit is in the U.K., right Jeff? Those rifles with the thick barrels also look like Enfields. A nicely done "period room" and well-captured by our roving Nebraskan. Thanks for sharing this bit o' history, Jeff.

If you've ever wanted to make a difference but found it hard to believe that one person could... check out the Kiva Team Caedes discussion thread and discover that anything is possible.

Correct. This was taken at Pendennis Castle at Falmouth, Cornwall, England. The castle was used to protect the bay during WWI and WWII.
