    Yes, the Roman army.

    I would play in the ruins of a roman port/fort and people it with those who lived there

    Not really. I didn't even know about the idea of having imaginary friends until my mom and grandma told me about the idea.

    Yes. I seem to remember my first imaginary friend was God (as talking to God made talking to myself somewhat more acceptable.) After I became an Atheist, I wanted an older brother instead.

    Were you aware they were imaginary? Or were they real to you?
    Most kids seem to know that these friends were make believe, but not all.

    I was going to say something like that, except did you know at the time that God was a fictional character that you made up?

    Never had an imaginary friend (and didn't believe in fairy tales).

    I never had imaginary friends. Maybe as adults we substitute celebrities and sport figures. Imaginary as it being mostly a one sided friendship.
