This is how I remember Ironside Baracks Scheuen, 79 onwards, bit of a grim place, but Celle was superb

This used to be my Backyard when I was still going to School. We used to play Football with some
of the Soldiers at Ironside Bks. I used to live just down the Road in a place called Waldkater.
I don't know what happened to Ironside Bks after they built the Freiherr von Fritsch Kaserne.
Ironside used to be a Munition Factory during the War Days.
Last time I, a few Years ago, I drove up to the Gate at von Fritsch Kaserne, what a sad Site. It was all
shut down and starting to get overgrown. It was sad to see.

Not an RAF expert however can confirm HQ 84 Group RAF moved into Ironside Barracks on 7 Jun 45 and was their temporary accommodation until moving into Trenchard Barracks Celle study

7. June 1945, that was way before my time. I moved to that area in 1963 when I was 12 years old.
My Dad worked at Trenchard then. He was with the GSO at 633 MCTG RCT. He worked there from
1950 to 1984. There were different Units at Trenchard over the Years. I think the last one was the
Royal Anglian Regiment, 2nd Battalion, before it all got shut down.

The RAF handed over Trenchard Barracks to the army and HQ Hannover District moved from Bad Rothenfelde on 15 Feb 48, Hannover District was formed from 7th Armoured and 5th Infantry Divisions a month earlier, 1 Mar 49 7th Armoured Division reformed in Trenchard Barracks and the HQ and Signal Regiment remained there until a move to Verden late 50/early 51, then a long list of units https://baor-locations.org/trenchardbks.aspx.html (needs updating)

Certainly lots of History there from Trenchard and Ironside. Celle has been a Garrison Town for many Decades, not so much anymore with all the Cutbacks today. Munster Lager, Bergen- Hohne, Fallingbostel
were famous Military Places.
