Memories of the old Middleway Camp in Taunton are being sought by an ex-serviceman who was stationed there as a young National Serviceman in 1954.
The veteran, now 82, wants to pass his memories down to his children and grandchildren, and is hoping people will come forward with photos and accounts of the army camp which was demolished in 1966.
The gentleman does not live locally so contacted Taunton Deane Borough Council for help. The authority’s Armed Forces Member Champion, Councillor Bob Bowrah has taken up the call.
Mr Bowrah, who joined the The Royal Army Service Corps in 1959, is appealing for anyone with memories of Middleway to get in touch.
Mr Bowrah saw service at Norton Manor Camp near Taunton, the home of 40 Commando Royal Marines since 1983.
A borough council spokesperson said: “There appears to be little information publically available about the camp which was built in the area around Fons George at Haines Hill.
“Tom Mayberry of South West Heritage has sourced photos of the camp in 1946 and when it was being demolished 20 years later.
“Any other photos would be appreciated, as would any further information about Middleway.”
If you can help, please email details to firstname.lastname@example.org at Taunton Deane Borough Council, or post any information to N Paling, The Deane House, Belvedere Road, Taunton, TA1 3SX. Information received will be passed on to the veteran.
