Does anyone know the future of Munster yet? I know that it is due to close in the near (or maybe not so near) future, but can anyone deliberate?

Eskimo, I dont think that is correct. Check out Google Earth with search question, Münster - Gremmendorf. Buller Barracks is now a housing estate. They didnt even keep the Parade ground as a Carpark......lol

Never heard of Dennis,Simpson or Wyverne Barracks and i have been here since 1991.

The old Loddenheide complex is now a business park.And the only remaining building from the camp is the garrison church.

Dennis Bks are in Munsterlarger. 32nd Armoured Engineer Regt. were there in the late 70's
The Devon & Dorsets Battalion Headquarters are located within Wyvern Barracks in Exeter UK. I have also found a mention of a Wyvern Bks. in Lüneburg and 24 Missile Regt were stationed there in the llate 1950's early 60's

Only just found the site and found it enjoyable. Sad to hear that Buller Barracks is no more. For the record 1LI were in Buller Barracks from 1981 - 1984. I think we followed the Gloucestershire Regiment, but no one followed us, at least not immediately. The Barracks was handed over empty as our BAOR role (Airmobile) went to 2LI in Deilinghofen

The only two Barracks left in Munster are, Oxford Barracks for the Armoured Infantry, at Present 1 Scots Guards.

York Barracks for the Tank Regiment, RDG.

Oxford Barracks is being taken over as a Mechinised Camp for a Mechinised Battalion this Year as 1SG are moving back to the UK.

Great City and Great Posting (well,Next to spending 2 years in Wavel Barracks, Berlin) 1990-1992 with 1st Bn Irish Guards.

My mum was born on this camp in 1957, her father was a sergent intelligence. All i know about her was that she had a tattoo on her arm with BAOR on it, which i guessed she got for being born on an army camp. Please if anyne knoews of her or my grandad please leave me a note. I would like to meet my mom if she's still alive before my 21st birthday as i am heading off to join the army. Thanks for your time. her name was heather canovan

PostSubject: York Barracks   9/7/2008, 19:42

I was stationed at York Barracks (Gremmendorf) from 1952 - 1954 while serving with the Royal Signals. At that time it was HQ 20th Armd Bde, 6 Armoured Div. The resident armoured regt was 17/21 Lancers who were equipped with Centurions, and of course Brigade HQ to which I was attached. I did a total of 16 years with both Regular Army and TA, but always considered my best time was at 20 Armd Bde., we were worked bloody hard as it was at the height of the Cold War and 6 Armoured Div had just been reformed as part of our NATO presence and with 7 Armoured Div, 11 Armoured and 2 Infantry Divisons formed 1 Corps .. Great memories of a super bunch of guys and a terrific unit .. wish I could roll back the clock.
