|Subject: Hobart Barracks. 8/12/2012, 16:24|| |
In the early 60's my father was in 3rd RHA.
His name is Peter Biggs.
I am is son, Trevor, and I am trying to find out as much as I can about him in his Army days.
Dad was not the sort of bloke to talk about his work and I just want to know as much as I can.
Can you help me please.
Thank you all.

Go to the home page of this site (not the forum)
Click on locations, click on Detmold, click on Hobart Barracks.
You should then come to a lengthy article, with a series of photographs describing various aspects of life in the barracks. Our gunner contributors will confirm whether 3 RHA were still equipted with Sexton or had been issued with its replacement Abbot which was mounted on a FV 430 series variant chassis in your father's time
