Many of the photos displayed on this site were hosted via Photo Bucket. The company decided to discontinued the free service members enjoyed. Photo Bucket closed the free bit! So we lost most photos.

If you wish to post some new photos? I might be able to assist you!

As promised. These are Ted's photos . Posted by Alan.

I hope I positioned the photos correctly between the text!!                                                  


Photos 001 & 002 were given to me by Pte Croft 'The Border Regt.' He
was the Brigade Commanders driver.
02. In the background is the Parade ground at Wrexham Barracks. The
low building housed 11 Coy LAD REME on the left and 113 Coy LAD REME
on the right.








====================================================================

16.  Buildings on the right.The small one was the Guardroom and the
large one was 113 Coy billets.The entrance on the right led to - on
the second floor - the LAD quarters. Entrance on the left. Ground
floor was on the right CSMs - Don Helyer - ,office next was OC's -
Major Shaw and next to that the 2 i/c. Opposite was the Orderly room.
on the left of the entrance, the Pay Office and the MQ's S/Sgt - not
on 113 Coys strength (I think!), opposite these two  the QM Stores.
The third floor was a 0.22 range. To the left of this block - not seen
- was the Garrison Chapel. The block facing was the Canteen, left on
the ground floor - on the right the NAAFI and WVS Reading Room. The
second floor was the NAAFI Managers quarters. The snow had just fallen
in this photo, it would have melted within 15 minutes because of the
Central Heating pipes under the road!








16b. Was our MQ. In the background was the Sgts Mess on the second
floor. In Jan to July 1957 the bottom floor housed HQ 2 Inf Div Column
RASC - at the front and the Sgts Mess dining room to the rear, entered
by the door on the right. the door on the left housed the WVS ladies
and I think some school teachers.

The camp consisted of 3 accomodation Blocks, (113 Coy, 11 Coy & the
Sgts Mess) the Canteen Block behind which was the Parade ground. At
the rear of the PG was, on the left, The Officers Mess. Behind were
the LAD Workshops and behind them , running at right angles were two
sets of Garages housing 11 Coy on the left and 113 Coy. At the rear of
11 Coy lines was an Emergency Water Tank - we swam in it in the
Summer!!! At the very rear of the camp was a row of single storey
buildings. The left became the Workshop of 113 Coy LAD when they were
issued with 10 Ton Sud Werkes trucks. The right was the boiler house.
I noticed that all the Barracks that I went into in Germany the
heating pipes ran under the road this was good in getting out of the
camp but often caused problems when the trucks hit the ice outside!!!
The Garrison had a set of MQ's outside and on the left of the camp (
Steinknappen Strasse) and a row of flats about a mile nearer the town
(Kuhlendahl Strasse) All the Officers seemed to live in Civilian
houses to the right of the Park which was next to the camp.




I hope
that you can make sense of this! Ask if you cannot! Over 60 years ago
but pretty clear in my mind!

Thanks so much for those photos, my parents had one of those MQs on Steinknappen Str. I attended Windsor Boys School in Hamm for the first year my father was stationed there until I joined up as an Apprentice at AAS Carlisle, where I now live.
