Help please Exclamation

I have found a reference that Manchester Barracks was in Goslar, and that there was an Anglesey Barracks in Wuppertal. The year found in reference to Anglesey Barracks is 1952, with B.A.O.R. 4 also mentioned

Can anybody possibly confirm please Question

Paul.

Paul, don't know if it's any help but I went to Wuppertal to do 406 Inspections on The Ulster Rifles vehicles, this would definitly have been in 1956 or 57, can't remember the name of the barracks though.

That would be about right time wise for the Royal Ulster Rifles.

From what I have found, I am beginning to think that there was an Anglesey Barracks and a Manchester Barracks in Wuppertal!!

Via a long and convoluted journey, and if what I have found is correct, it seem that Anglesey Barracks may have been on the opposite side of the road from Bangor Barracks. Just a little closer than the Isle of Anglesey is to Bangor, North Wales. After all, it was the 53rd (welsh) Division in the area at the time.
