Hello Jim and Merry Christmas.

Whilst i have no personal knowledge of Woburn House and can be of no help, may I suggest you post on the Belfast
Genealogy Thread.

Some people on there may have the knowledge you are seeking.

Good luck and Happy New Year 2021 when it comes.

In my time 1963/4/5 the were confined to a cell for a short period and not allowed out door duties, there were 2 cells, but we all slept in dormitories holding 6 to twelve, if you got caught fighting it was the cells for a couple od days, one of the three POs went on to be a Governor in Long Kesh was feared by all.
