Arrsers self taken photo collection.

Visited what was 12 Armoured Workshop REME in Osnabrück yesterday (25th January). Couldn't get in unfortunately but pulled up by the main entrance and recognised the guard room with the clock tower on top. Do you remember it @AlienFTM .
Also found the old block of flats that I lived in at Belm. I left in 1980.

Was that taken with a different lens or is the building really wider at the top?

Belm still looks sh¡t. When Alien Minor 2 came along and the estate office tried to "upgrade" us to a C type quarter with one year of the tour left, a polite "fúck off" ensured we stayed in the hovel we'd about made bearable over two years in Dodesheide. Despite an RAF bomb or two threatening to level it.

Kinda depressing seeing yet another of my barracks derelict though. Even if it wasn't much better occupied.

I concur, I was gutted to discover Birdwood no longer exists.
Though I was pleasantly surprised to find Norton Manor where I was a Junior sodya is still there and now has 40 Commando in residence when I went past it a few years back.
