Somewhere in BAOR Locs, it  tells that Quebec Barracks in Osnabruck were originally a WW2 POW camp where the inmates ........ from the Balkans I think....., were housed in wooden huts.  The camp was rebuilt post-war, the first Brit unit in was 16 LAA Regt RA (my lot) who took over the mainly single-storey, rendered blockwork accommodation in 1953.  They remained there until  April 1956 when they moved back to Carter Bks. , Bulford and some of the rank & file were detached to form a movement light unit ( searchlights shone on clouds ) for deployment against EOKA in Cyprus.

At the same time as 16 Regt were in occupation, there was a mortar locating battery housed in a couple of blocks at the western end of the camp, opposite the ends of the MT sheds & beside the sports field.  Not sure of their number now, something like 148 Battery, maybe.

I understand it's all gone now.
