USAF Training in Bedford late 60’s – Urgent help required

My father, USAF, was stationed at Chicksands in the mid 50s. We lived at 10 Kimbolton Road. I recently learnt that the husband of a friend, also US AF, attended a training course in Bedford in 1969. He trained with British soldiers to intercept Arabic morse code. The training took place at a facility with dormitories and canteen. A couple of years ago he returned to Bedford but couldn’t locate the facility. I’m going to be in Bedford on Saturday – Sunday the 24th-25th and would like to take photos for him. Would you happen to know the address of the facility?
