Hello everyone,

Why am I here? Well, that's a good question and I think you would of had to have been an army brat, as I was, in the 60's to appreciate what I am looking for on this site. Perhaps it doesn't exist, but I am going to try anyway.

My father , like his father was a soldier of the British Empire, and when my two brothers and I came along in the late 50's we became part of the British Armed Forces family. I have to say even fifty+ years later , I still remember it fondly and with much affection.

Sennelager and Paderborn are the two places I remember, but particularly Paderborn as this was my fathers last posting before he left the army in 1968.

I would very much like to reconnect with anyone who was around at the time.....

If you went to the camp Primary school from 1964 - 1968 I would be delighted to hear from you.

Many thanks and kind regards,

Simon H Cater son of the late WO2 Douglas Llewellyn Cater 24th Missile Regt. RA

Dougie Cater was at ERE as PSI 299 Bty RA TA way back in the mid 60s, up to his ears in Bty Camps and firing weekends at Larkhill, and soaking 25 pdr muzzle brakes in vinegar. He was at Nienburg before that (Brum's time). As a LBdr I was n't mtg him the Mess, and he wasn't my Battery, though I may well have seen him at 24 Msl in Barker Barracks, before he left the colours.

His sons (Simon plus 2 brothers) were seen but not heard at the TA Centre, and, later for the four remaining years of service, enjoyed themselves at the Raabe /Uhland /Arndt strasse Estate at Paderborn and the primary school (now called Bishop's Park Sch) beside the NAAFI - divided from the Barracks, in those days, by the largest cabbage field in the district.

Have already PM Simon and have reconnected him with a little of his childhood memoirs.
