This photo of Royal Engineers dated 1960 has ended up in the History Photo Album of the AAS Carlisle.

Although we at Carlisle did have a few RE's. This looks like everyone is a RE?

The photo belongs else where! But where?  The visit of so many RE's could have been down to a Quadrangular Games even?

Can anyone recognise any of the guys, or the location? Is there a connection from maybe Chepstow AAS

Thanks  Alan

I think it must be Chepstow. I was 60C B Coy at Arborfield and we all worn AAS badges. Although we lived in spiders just like the one in the background. When I first saw Chepstow it was all new buildings because it could be seen from the Severn Bridge when they opened it.
I can promise that there isn't a single face there I recognise.
Didn't the REs have a place at Chatham?

The photo is later, 60 B is a junior intake and No 2 Dress was not introduced until 1962, maybe JLR Dover?

Well spotted Alan! We were in 'button-up-to-the-neck' SDs until then.
