I also didn't like Herford (Wentworth - 1952) ... for some unknown reason the local boozer landlord did not like 6 Armd Div .. wouldn't serve us .. we were temp housed by 11 Armd Div who had no problems. The mess hall was down the road from Wentworth and we had to pass a Girls School and the little darlings would pelt us with anything on hand.

I remember Maresfield Barracks, i think it was just up the road from me. A few times i was called upon to drop parts off to 7 sigs (lad).
During my time at Hammersmith the other units in Herford were 7 Sigs & 1RTR ( later replaced by Hussars i think ) so you can imagine what the weekends were like - Tasty to say the least....
