QUEBEC Barracks ? The only Quebec Barracks I knew of was the former Regimental Depot of the Northamptonshire Regiment, of which my late Father was a member of. Quebec Barracks was at Wootton, Northampton. I lived with my family there in married quarters on and off for several years, inbetween postings to Germany/HK.

When the Northants Regt amalgamated with the Leicesters (I think) to form the East Anglian Regt, around 1960, the Pioneer Corps took over Quebec Barracks and it was re named Simpson Barracks.
Now the barracks has gone and the site is a retirement village, well was on my last visit to UK in 2004.

So where is this other Quebec Barracks?

Until Recently there was a Quebec Barracks in Osnabruck. It housed the majority of 21 Engr Regt and also 7 amrd bde and signals Sqn, Also some of Brigade HQ..

Dog Sqn 21 was housed in Roberts Barracks but 7 HQ Sqn , 73 AES and 4 AES were based in quebec barracks.

If my memory serves me correctly it was on landwehr strasse. Located near to Atter.

Small correction on your comments regarding the renaming of Simpson/Quebec Barracks Northampton. It was the Royal Lincolns and the Northamptons who amalgamated to form the 2nd East Anglians. The Royal Norfolks and the Suffolks amalgamated to form the 1st East Anglians, the Essex Regiment and Bedfordshire and Hertfordshire Regiments amalgamated to form the 3rd Eat Anglians at the same time

There was a further reorganisation in 1968 when the three East Anglian Regiments amalgamated with the Royal Leicesters to form the Royal Anglian Regiment. The 2nd Battalion regards Leicestershire, LLincolnshire and Northamptonshire as its principle recruiting area.

Thanks Captain, yes when my Dad retired it was still 2 East Anglians, he was RQMS.
Sorry for my inaccuracy. Must be the colonial sun that has got to me, after 45 years down under. 45 years, crikey, done my sentence, would they allow me to come back to UK now. Well perhaps I don't want to, like it here. Went back to UK for a visit in 97, 2002 and 2004. Enough is enough. cat

Wasn't it 12 Mech Bde and then 4 Armd Bde in Quebec Bks? Surely 7 Armd Bde were in Soltau and then Fallingbostal?

And of course the Quebec Barracks, so named after the Battle of Quebec, in Canada, where so many British Regiments fought, including my dads Regt, 'The NorthamptonShire Regt. 48th/58th.foot. @ 'The Steel Backs.' Also the last infantry Regt to carry their colours into battle, well so my old man told me anyway.

I think you're right in saying 4 Armd and 12 (it was Armd when I was att 12 Armd Wksp in Mercer at the top of the hill on the Vehrter Landstrasse 82-85). And 7 in Soltau / Fally.

I was attatched to 23 Engr Regt at Quebec Barracks from 1989 to 1992. Also at Quebec at that time were: 12 Ordnance Company, HQ 12 Armd Bde, and 212 Sig Sqn.

Our quarter was at Lotte, the wife hated it.

Hello,
I'm from Germany and now live Inside the Quebeck Barracs, in detail it's Building 87. Yesterday it didn't know what to do and decided to browse around in the Quebeck. It's very exciting to see the history behind the buildings. It's like the BF left an hour before, very emotional. Maybe somebody can tell me where I can find Photos from the active times. I'm sorry for my bad english. Are there exciting locations in the Quebec, which I should take a view over?

Just out of idle curiosity.....how do you lot pronounce "Quebec"....do you pronounce it as "Kw'bek" or as "Kaybek" or as "Kwaybek" or as "Kewbek"?

The pronounciation even varies within Canada, depending on which region one is in or whether one is a Francophone or Anglophone. Same for my city of Calgary. Some pronounce it as Cal-GARY and others pronounce it as CAL-gree. of course, given the Gaelic origins of the name "Calgary", it probably is more accurate to call it Cal-GARY but those of us who live here for any length of time don't...it's CAL-gree....it's only the ROC (Rest of Canada) that calls it Cal-GARY.

I pronounce it like "Kwebek", I think most of the Germans call it in this way. Off Topic: For example the Roberts Barracs are only called by her former Name "Winkelhausen Kaserne".

Yes Indeed, HQ 7 Armd Bde shared Bournemouth Barracks Soltau with 1st Armd Div Ord Coy (1 ADOC) and a signal squadron then known as Task Force Alpha (TFA) I was posted there from 1980 to 1983.

Quebec Barracks in Osnabruck was home to some Infantry Battalions too!!! The 1st Bn. The Devonshire and Dorset Regiment (Bloody 11th) who I served with, was there from 1967 to 1969 . Before that was the 1st Bn. The Duke of Wellingtons Regiment (Duke of Boots) 1965 to 1967. It was the Head Quarters also of 12 British Brigade, 2 Division.
I spent the 1st year in Osnabruck in Roberts Barracks due to refurbishment of Quebec Barracks. B company along with the Band and Drums were guests of the Royal Engineers and enjoyed our stay there.

After the D & D's left in (around) 1969-70 Quebec barracks was taken over by the 1st Battalion Royal Regiment of Wales. I served there as a Cpl ECE in the REME LAD. Also included the RRW's second tour of Belfast in 1970/71.
I visited both Quebec and (what was left of) Roberts barracks (where I served with 23 Eng Rgt Wksps) in December 2011. I drove around Quebec barracks to 'identify' the REME block, and my old room but the camp was looking very overgrown and neglected.
Still brought back many memories though.
