Hi All

There is a photograph of the gate complex of the Corradino DQs on the Tal Handaq Nostalgia site under the Then and Now section pic 876. Apparently it is now a sports centre.

There is this pic. from the Bonnici & Cassar book, may be of interest. There are many references to Corradino in the book, but from a quick look through did not see mention of DQ's.

Hi All

From the size of that cell block they expected a few malcontents.

Having been told off once I could not possibly comment.

I believe the dockyard apprentice training centre in Chatham was the former DQ's, many would say that it was put ot a good use.

The actual cell block at Chatham, was behind the Main Gate to PEMBROKE. I was watchkeeping there as Barrack Guard Cell Sentry in 1960, we did 48 about weekdays and 72 about weekends ( 4 hrs on, 4 hours off for 72 hrs was a killer.)
The 72 off was nice though

As I suspected my story was only so much scuttlebutt.

I can remember that the training centre was of brick buildings 2 or 3 floors high, built in the form of a triangle with an open space in the middle, the road past went from I think Pembroke gate up to Gillingham,all this from memory as it was 63ish.
The picture shows a set of buildings built in a triangle, just left of the middle, which I reckon is the old centre, probably retained and turned into flats.
