Gough Bks,The Black Watch were in 1971.
Which Regiment was there before the Black Watch and who took over from them?

3 Inf Bde HQ & Sig Sqn AKA 203 Signal Squadron reformed 1 Jul 88 at Drumadd Barracks and were there until 22 Mar 93 then up the road to Mahon Road Camp Portadown hope this helps would be interested to know who was in Gough Barracks in 1972 while serving with 3 Inf Bde HQ & Sig Sqn when in Lurgan on a two year tour we were sent at weekends to top up the infantry patrols while the lads had a break
