I was in 22 Air Defence Regt RA from November 1976 to November 1985. I notice some wrong information on your site, see below.
“With September in 1976 came the creation of the Artillery Division. Headed from Bielefeld it comprised of;
5th Heavy Regiment RA (Hildesheim)
50th Missile Regiment, RA (Menden)
12 Air Defence Regiment, RA (Dortmund)
22nd Air Defence Regiment, RA (Soest)
94th Locating Regiment, RA (Celle)
1st Battalion, The Royal Scots, Infantry (Münster)
8th Transport Regiment, RCT (Münster)
More reorganisation was implemented in January 1978 with the creation of 3rd and th Armoured Brigades. The divisions were created from 6th (Soest) and 20th (Detmold) Armoured Brigades and the divisional troops of 4th Division. A very armour orientated BAOR were as follows:”
When I joined the regiment they were at Kirton Lindsey near Scunthorpe. They moved to Napier barracks in Dortmund in November 1977 and stayed there until I believe 1992. 22 Air Defence Regt was never in Soest during this period.

Am not sure where the source quote concerning the formation of the Artillery Division in Sep 76 is on the site - but Hoppy1 is correct about the location of 22 AD Regt Napier Bks Dortmund 1977 - 92.
The Air Defence increment was 16 AD Regt RA resident in Salamanca Bks Soest from 1971 to end of 1976 (they returned to Moore Bks Dortmund 1981 - 85).
