Shame to see Glyn Hughs Barracks in such as state, was posted ther as the RE Chippy with 1 Armd Fd Amb - late 1980's Some pretty good times there, mostly rugby & beer!!!! The photo of the mortuary slab brings back a few memories of daring new boys to lie on it after telling them a few tales.

When I joined Glyn Hughes Barracks in 1974, it was home to 28 Field Ambulance. It combined with 29 Field Ambulance to become !st Armoured Division Field Ambulance in 1976 if memory serves. I have many happy memories of life here to the extent I remained on an extended tour until 1979.

In connection with this thread and the RAMC thread about 28 and 29 Field Ambulance units - can anyone confirm when Glyn Hughes actually closed?

A post on this thread gives 28 as being there in 1974, and some photographs just uploaded on the main site are from National Service days.

To members of the forum

I am not conversed with the naming of Army Barracks, However, I would like to point out that I think Glyn Hughes (Brigadier)Deputy Director Medical Services to the Eighth Corps and the Second Army was probably the most senior British medical person to enter Belsen Camp at a very early stage.

Hughes was one of the main witnesses for the prosecution in the Belsen Trial. For his actions at Belsen, Hughes was awarded the Order of St. John of Jerusalem and the Legion of Merit. He also received a second Bar to his DSO, for actions during the attempted relief of Arnhem from the South, earlier in the campaign, where as the most senior surviving officer, he took command of the tanks. In 1945 he was awarded the CBE.
