Reading through Locations Hildesheim Tofrek Bks, I see the top 3 Barrack photos are in fact part of Charles Barracks Brunswick with 4 storey blocks. The caption, however , written by Ron Bargh about the east surrey regiment is correct and should refer solely to regimental station Brunswick. Tofrek Bks was an airfield with no highrise blocks, only the control tower had 4 storeys. Elsewhere somebody from Birgelen wrote that Brunswick had no major units, this is not correct. The east surreys were in Charles Bks till 58, thereafter i think the Bundeswehr moved in. Yorkshire Bks Brunswick was too small to take larger units, but housed a British primary school adjacent to a NAAFI families shop. Was there 56-57 before moving on to school at6 KAS plön.
