Drove past Stanley Barracks in Bovi' the other day, for a look at my alma mater.

When did they close JLR?

After the SDR closed down all the old regimental depots and Junior entry was banned, 1992 I seem to remember, they had some sort of closing down do about then. It was being used as the school of army recruiting but that has goen tri service now I think. Was the Conq still out the front?

Simple - JLR was there to fully train soldiers who would go on to be the SNCOs of the future. Catterick was there to train cannon fodder. Any more questions?
