Info on HMS requested

Hi All,

My son is going to Mauritius in September this year (2013) to see where he was born in April 1969 and I am after some information please.

I was there from Jan 68 to Feb 70, as a LRO(T), and remember a few names Windy (Geoff) Gale, Alfie Marks, Alfie Hines, Mick Arrow, Des Desouza, Tony Cokes.

Have been looking on Google Earth and have found HMS and recognize the flats and swimming pool Ė I canít remember anything else. I am looking for the Church of Scotland, where my son was christened and RNH. Please could anyone let me know, where they are, in relation to the swimming pool which I see is still there.

My son tells me he needs to write to the Police Commissioner, to get permission, before he visits HMS - anyone have any information on this?
I thought the road to between the flats and swimming pool was a public highway?

Thanks in anticipation.

Enjoy the sunshine one and all in UK at last.
