Although it pains me to admit it. my eldest son was once a slop jockey. From 1978 to 1982 he was helping to 'nourish' 35 Armoured Engineers at Hameln. He and a handful of ACC and RE contemporaries are planning a nostalgic road trip to the old place in August. I have no doubt they'll find it much changed. Any Arssers able to say what watering holes have closed, what's happened to Gordon Barracks etc.and where a convivial time may still be had?
