More about the Copthorne Barracks

I seem to remember what the actual dormitory part of the barracks looked like.

New recruits were on the top floor of the building, in a loft.  I can’t remember if there were exposed beams or not, but the ceiling was finished with white stucco and sloped upward, or may have gabled above us.

There were windows, it seems they were in large dormers big enough for two or three of us to stand in them comfortably.

The beds were single-level, and made with thick bent steel much like hospital beds of the time.  There were perhaps a hundred of them in all, close together and in 3 or 4 rows.

Once again, I’m at a loss to actually research this.  Any help will be greatly appreciated.
