Hi there,
I was stationed in Smuts Bks from Feb 1985 to Feb 1988. Great posting......however you fail to mention the other units in there, there were some RAEC and the 38 Field Sqn R.E.
I also know Smuts Bks is still standing, pretty much how it was left in the 90's, Spandau Prison has become a shopping centre !!
