Hi Paul,

Somewhere in the loft I have one of the presentation porcelain pint mugs that were issued as a commemorative. If I can find it, would you like some pics?

Here you go Morris. Click on the image for a bigger picture. Used thumbnails as images are quite large at original size. Paul.

Spent weeks painting and polishing up our 432's for that. I didn't go for some reason but I understand the dust was something else. Bit pointless all that bull then!

We had a Queens silver jubilee parade at 16 Bn Bicester but what made this particular parade a bit special was the fact that HRH herself attended. We had two drill Sgts from Pirbright (Welsh Guards if memory serves) spend a couple of weeks putting the Battalion through the routine for the parade and it must be said, they were very good at what they did. No bawling or beasting, they just knew how to teach drill and when they had finished we were bloody good. I was pleased to be picked for the guard of honour even though this meant extra drill, but we were inspected by HRH herself (I didn't realise until then how short she was)

We were told the Battalion would be awarded five Jubilee medals (for a Battalion of 600!) I have no idea if this was the case or not. I certainly didn't recieve one, and I don't know anyone else who did.

In later years the silver jubilee medal was (in my experience) seen as something of a joke. I did once or twice see it on officers chests while on parade but fortunately for them, at a glance most people couldn't identify it.

Do you mean this stage:-

"4) Where file is written you will find a box with Search or Durchsuchen next to it. Click on it and find the image you wish to import."

If you are having problems you can, if you wish send them to me as jpeg preferably (not pdf) and I will upload them for you. I will try and find out if there is a problem with Mac and this programme. I have just tried to find a vontact page for servimg with no success!!

For some reason, the images will not load on to this page at the moment. I will have another crack at it later.

Some load, others do not. Or one loads and shows, but disappears when another is loaded. But I have set up a new page on the main site and it can be found her:-

http://baor-locations.com/eventsandparades.aspx

The page is only in its infancy at the moment, but at least you will be able to view the images from Graham.

Thank you Graham, that is very kind of you. I thought it was the best way to get them "in view" so to say.

I still have not cracked the problem as to why they would not post, but I will try again.

Donald,

The brick built huts in Barford Camp were just as cold in 1970. Central entry door in one side with a room either side, and a toilet/hand basin in the middle. One gas heater in each room (when it decided to work that is). Some of the Nissen huts were still in use, but I don't think any were used as living accommodation.

The LAD area (on the opposite side of the road from the camp) now seems to have been demolished, as do the brick built huts at the bottom end of the camp. As far as I can recollect, and using Googlemap, the camp is still relatively complete, although it could be in the process of demolition. Still seems to be a few Nissen huts standing, as well as the Cookhouse and some of the Battery Offices.

Paul.

Paul.
