When I join up for my national service in June 1950 I went to Colchester for training after training in August was posted to Düsseldorf in Germany with the ROYAL NORFOLKS regiment
After about 8 mouths we came home to Dover Castle for about 1 month then on to Crowburough to train to go to Korea but I didn’t go so we got sent back to Germany with the ESSEX regiment to Elizabeth barracks in Minden for about 2 mouths then on to Lüneburg where I finish my time in the B A O R
Demobbed at Brentwood barracks in June1952 then went on to do three and a half years of territorial in the NORFOLKS I would love to hear from any of my old pals SYD

Hello Syd,

Do you have any idea which barracks it may have been in Dusseldorf?

When you mentioned coming home, was it the whole Regiment, or just some of you?

Paul.

Hello Syd, I'm affraid I'm a bit after your time but I do have memories of Luneburg, we would on occasion travel there from Soltau for a Saturday night out, kip in the car and drive back on Sunday.

I know, not much help am I!
