PostSubject: Hi new to the forum - introduction   3/1/2009, 18:15

Hi from sunny Staffordshire

I came across your very informative website while researching some photos I have in my ever increasing collection. My main interest is the WW2 North African Campagain and its battles due to my grandfathers service out there with the 1/6th Queens Rpyal west Surreys (infantry of the 7th Armoured Division). I have created a website www.eightharmy.co.uk in his memory and for all those that served alongside him.

The reason for my post is that in my collection I have a series of photos which I am sure are of barracks (BOAR) in Bielefeld Germay they were taken I think at the end of the war, in one of the pictures you will see a couple of guys standing by a sign "50 RHU armoures workshop" I dont know if this will help with the identification. this collection starts of in Iraq "Habbaniya" a RAF base and covers Syria, North Africa and then ends up in Bielefeld...I think, I say think because the only thing I have to go on is that they were developed in Bielefeld. I have 11 photos that i will try to attach. I hope you will be able to help in the identification.

thanks and regards

PostSubject: Ripon Barracks   3/1/2009, 23:31

Hi Guys after trawling through various links and websites I think these pictures are from Ripon Barracks Bielefled maybe someone here maybe able to confirm this I have about 30 or so pictures of around these barracks. Also can anyone confirm weatheror not Winston Churchill visisted these barracks as I have a very poor picture that looks very much like the man himself awarded someone with something.

I can confirm that most of the photos are of Ripon Barracks. I was there as a "brat" in the late 50's and remember the swimming pool well. I was also posted there in the 60s and again recognise some of the scenes.

Kieron,

Welcome to our happy band, both young and "not so young"

Philip is in the middle of finishing a course and posting preparations. If you wish, I will PM you with my postal address and you can send it to me.

I am going to add a link to your site on the main site when I have a moment. Do you have any preferred title?

Paul.

That would be great if you send me your postal address I'll send you a CD of the images and regards the link to my website and the title I would guess something like "Eighth Army - WW2"

Regards
Kieron
