We were in Nissan huts. They were cold and they had a little stove in the centre. And we had access to coke in a shed nearby. And it was the duty of everyone if we got up during the night to stoke up the stove. We used to get it really red hot the stove to keep us warm. It was so damn cold, but we had a comfortable bed, we had sheets and pillow slips. Whereas when I was training in Australia it was blanket and a pillow without the pillowslip on. So it was pretty good really.
