I posted the photo on Arrse and got the following response.

Quote :
The photo appears on page 36, Duke of Edinburgh's Royal Regiment (Berkshire and Wiltshire) by Martin McIntyre in association with the RGB&W Regimental Museum Tempus Publishing Limited.

You are correct. Previous instances of the photo posted here were on a remote site which charges to view photos [no matter who posted them]! I live in Minden (now) and the parade square resembles the layout in Elizabeth Bks (I was actually on my way there!) it is a supermarket (in the cookhouse - the accn blocks are given over to an OFH) - Clifton Barracks is totally dempolished and is a large VW and Peugeot dealership.

I was down the road in Westminster Barracks when this photo was taken.

Came across Col Tom Gibson several times in my Army career. Australian by birth he transferred to the British Army.i

I moved with 1 Black Watch from Warminster to Elizabeth Barracks Minden in April 1964. The unit was one of the first to be issued with AF430 series vehicles during autumn of 1964.
I moved on to SHAPE in France in Jan 65, so I don't know how long the Black Watch stayed in Minden.
