OK,

A new forum and I'm happy to be the first to post here. I was at Price Rurt School, in the '60's. I was based on the fliegerdiech.

Any more Cavaliers here, I know John is one.

Hi, Jim - was at PRS from Jan 51 to Jul 53, way before your time, I'm afraid, but we all share that same bond, right? I was in Howe House, our housemistress was Miss Drummond, later married to Mr. Slimming. When I first started there, all the main site houses were mixed, they were segregated some time late 52 or early 53, before I left anyway. My Dad was in 10th Royal Hussars, posted to Iserlohn, Epsom Barracks.

Very interesting clip however the original HMS Royal Rupert was moored in Wilhelmshaven-Sheerhafen

https://www.iwm.org.uk/collections/item/object/205160007

Found and translated to English

In the foyer of the school was a memorial with various objects, including a portrait of Prince Rupert. The school in Wilhelmshaven is said to have been named after the British warship "HMS Royal Rupert", which served as a submarine depot ship in the German fleet, later as war booty passed to the British and got the new name. The ship served the British military command in Wilhelmshaven from 1945 to 1947 as a conference and conference ship. In 1948 it was handed over to the Soviet Union. It was from 1945 to 1947 constantly on the quay in the immediate vicinity of the newly built British school.

Regarding Banterweg Kaserne later Cotswold Camp, Wilhelmshaven, it looks like the Royal Navy took over as HMS Prince Rupert in April 1946, prior to this and later in Wilhelmshaven:

31st Anti-Aircraft Brigade Royal Artillery
25 May 45 – 98th Heavy Anti-Aircraft Regiment Royal Artillery with all batteries
19 Nov 45 – 174th Heavy Anti-Aircraft Regiment Royal Artillery with all batteries

3rd Canadian Infantry Division (Canadian Army Occupation Force)
1 Mar 46 – C and D companies of 3rd Battalion North Shore Regiment (New Brunswick) – to 9 Apr 46

25 Apr 46 – 156th (Lowland) Infantry Brigade from 52nd (Lowland) Infantry Division was responsible for Stadtkreis Wilhelmshaven but no records of any troops in Banterweg Kaserne

15 May 46 – 52nd (Lowland) Infantry Division relieved 3rd Canadian Infantry Division (Canadian Army Occupation Force)

15 Jul 46 – Headquarters Royal Artillery 7th Armoured Division relieved 156th (Lowland) Infantry Brigade

4 Mar 48 – Danish Brigade Group command Hannover District relieved Headquarters Royal Artillery 7th Armoured Division

Steve,
PRS the school was not built in Wilhelmshaven, it occupied the former u boat training barracks on the banter see. Over the years, new buildings were added but the most buildings were former barracks blocks. I have seen a great deal of documentation about the school and the naval detachment before it. The navy occupied the school buildings as a shore establshment called hms royal rupert.

JAL,

Agree but Banterweg Kaserne was in Stadtkreis Wilhemshaven, here is a very early map section of the area, the army were there before the RN, source 31 AA Bde War Dairies held at Kew  study

Steve,it
I didn't say the RN were there before the army. What I said was that there was an RN shore establishment called hms royal Rupert (originally naval party 1735, I think), located on the site later occupied by the school. I was also trying to clarify that the school did not occupy purpose built buildings but took over the Laverne buildings previously occupied by the RN.
