I've just become a member of this site. I was posted to Osnabruck 1n 68 and served in RHQ and 43 Fld Sp Sqn. Had a great time there - more or less. Does anyone remember the Tradesmans Arms 43's squadron Bar

Sadly no, didn't land in Osnabruck until 1989 (23 Engrs Quebec) my only link with Roberts barracks was the dentist! However I have seen recent pics of the place, quite sad.

What happened to the Officers Mess in Roberts Barracks 2 Div Engineers (23 Engr Rgt) side. I've just been looking at a Google map of Osnabruck and it does seem to be there. I was posted to the Officers Mess on arrival in '68.

The Officers Mess is still there although large parts of the camp have been knocked down sadly. I was there last month and took a load of photos. Very sad to see it as it is now.

Hi, am interested to know which blocks still standing; we were in block 12, on "an der netterheide" side before main gate, and used the cook house opposite across the square
Would appreciate any photos, if you are able to download
Good days at Roberts Barracks
Regards Tony

I was on the 2 Div Engr side between the NAAFI and the block that housed the Post Office and the Devon and Dorsets.
The only part of the 25 Regt? side was the Crowbar, the barman was called Les and he had a Chameleon!!!

I've just been looking at Roberts Barracks on Google Maps. They are knocking a lot of it down. The gym on the 25 Regiment side has gone as has the postal block nex to the centre road. Very sad, but i suppose that's progress.

Hi just joined this site also.
I was posted to 43 Fld Spt Sqdn in 1969 after JLRE Dover and Cove and medically discharged in 1971.
My Father was stationed in 37 Sqdn in 1957-59 so I was a Pad's brat then and my younger Brother (Tony)was born in Munster BMH in 1958
I remember people like Uggy Stark and Martin Carrol alonng with Noddy (John) McFall , Nick Crown who was killed on exercise(tragic accident)
Unfortunately my 64 year old memory doesn't help me remember the names of a lot of other people although I can still picture their faces.
Can anyone refresh my memory
Mike Gee

Yes I remember some of the guys. Topper Brown, Geordie Croton, Bob Steels, Nobby Clarke, Paul Summerhays. All these and a few more were in Plant Troop. hope that's jogged your memory a bit. I remember Nick Crown, great lad, tragic.
