One of the many small outposts up in the hills above Phaphos. These outpost's where situated near a confrontation point between the Turkish and Greek Cypriots. These outpost's where normally all makeshift, as nothing was allowed to be a permanent fixture. They where rat holes even when they where based at a police station like the one at Kophinou, which was halfway between Limassol and Nicosia, we where not allowed to use the buildings. The only decent base was the one above Limassol at Polemedhia Dam, which had been built for Lord Kitchener at the time of the Gallipoli campaign, here was based the Pompadours HQ Company. The MT platoon had the old Sergeants mess as they had built a new one lower down the hill. The only good thing about it was that it was dry, clean and a wonderful view of Limassol
