I was posted here between '83 and '85 with 656 Signal Troop (Forward 2 Inf Div HQ & Sig Regt).

The troop was left behind along with a number of staff officers when 2 Div as shipped back to York. We were bunked in along side 54 Eng and Ambulance Support Sqn RCT.

The NAAFI shop was alongside the main gate and accessed off the public road.

The accomadation blocks for the Signal troop and HQ were behind the guardroom and medical centre. Across the square was the NAAFI canteen and bar and to the right and down towards the bottom gates was the vehicle shed for the troop with about 8 FFR landrovers a couple of GS's and the commanders Landrover complete with Bed!!

Behind the cookhouse was the Troop offices on the ground floor and the HQ staff offices and comcen were on the upper floor behind a secured grill. I'll have a route around Mum's house next time I'm there as Im sure there are a few photo's floating around.

In late '85, the staff were relocated to Bielefeld and the troop was down sized and we moved to Lippstadt along side 22 Sig Regt.

Thing I remember about Barre is that it got a little "chewy" after a few hours of quoffing the amber juice! I believe you can buy it from their website if you need a trip down memory lane Very Happy
