Author royalties to The Soldiers Charity (ABF) and MPSC Association. Foreword by General Mike Jackson From a German POW camp to HM Forces only remaining detention centre, the mere mention of Colly struck fear into the hearts of thousands of servicemen over the years. But what was it really like behind the forbidding barbed wire in those ancient Nissan Huts? How much has it changed since 1947? Written in the words of those who were there, from the 1940s through to the present day, Commandants, Members of Staff, Detainees, Military Escorts, Padres and visitors have shared their own experiences to create a unique history that sheds light on an almost unknown area of military life. At turns funny, sad and sometimes surprising, the accounts show how much the Military Corrective Training Centre (MCTC) and the idea of military detention has evolved.

She works at the Military Corrective Training Centre in Colchester and lives with her husband David in North East Essex. 60 b/w illustrations
