HMS Glendower

#1
Hello

On the quest for places I visted as a youth I am wondering if anyone has any pictures of what used to be HMS Glendower at Pwhelli North Wales.

When my Dad joined the Navy he was sent there and said he spent his basic training building a holiday camp for Billy Butlins.

The place is now a Haven Holiday camp and little remains but one concrete gun emplacement.

Re HMS Glendower, there is no written history but The Reminiscences of a Radar Plotter by John Barford Lindop ( Amazon Books, UK, ) has a section of this establishment including photos .
