Outside 'A' or 'C' Block 1980 734 viewsThis picture was taken outside our old flat in the barracks at Tigne. I cannot remember if it was 'A' or 'C' block - it was right next to the slipway to the boathouse! My brother will correct me. Tigne remained much as it was in the sixties in 1980 - prior to any development. The Army buildings were occupied by Chinese Dock workers when this photo was taken, I recall the Maltese put them there as cheap accommodation..2 commentsNick Robinson05/24/11 at 13:19David Robinson: Behind you is Tigne school so we had a very short ...
