Other information

Charlie Shrives of Milford Haven Patrol remembered the Camrose Patrol with affection;  “They were a very good Unit and we carried out several manoeuvres with them. During these schemes we used to carry fish with us and exchange them for eggs. One family managed to supply two eggs so typical of “Stokey”  [Sergeant Lewis of Milford Haven Patrol] he gave them a large cod in exchange”.
