1&3 Trg Regts RE, Cove, Knocked down in the early 80's and turned into a housing estate I believe.

Stirling Castle owned by some Historic mob still there as a home head quarters.

Fort George contains a museum for 4 Scots while 3 Scots pacify the highlands.

Hamilton Depot for HLI was closed in 1921 when it moved to Maryhill Barracks which were demolished and made into a housing estate in 1961.(The guard room is now housing association office, there is a few services quarters still somewhere :? )

The old camp wall and spiked fencing is still in place as is what looks like the guard room also a plaque on the outside wall dedicated to the HLI pass there from time to time if you want to see some pictures.
JLR Troon nothing left apart from 2 MT hangers mostly grazed on by horses these days

the rifle depot winchester, now posh apartments with a nice water fountain in the middle of the square.
Several Regtl museums there too. Rifles? AGC, Hussars and The Gurkhas.
And the LI and RGJ.
The Keep Bodmin, the front is still there and is the DCLI Museum, Copthorne/Sir John Moore at Shrewsbury, big TA centre and some sort of Brig/div HQ. A nice Barracks actually!
Jellalabad Bks Taunton was similar in 85 when I was there last time, I liked the look of the place!

RMPTS, Roussillon Bks, Chichester. I haven't a clue what they have done or what they intend to do with it, but I don't miss the place one f*cking iota. I hope they raize it to the ground and build a LiDL on it.

There is a TDG depot at West Hallam Derby (was there yesterday) does anyone know who the hell if anyone it belonged too as it had that old fecked off ex MOD look about the place but the folks working there couldn't tell me a thing as they were all either POLISH or a snot nosed polyversity drop out who thought the world owed him a favour..

Would be nice to know if anybody has a little info on the place because it would make a nice robbery site due to all the new and unregisterd Aston Martin's parked in a warehouse.

Inglis Barracks, in Mill Hill East, London was home to the Middlesex, then the Postal services RE/ RLC and a civvy workshops. The last army family moved out a few months ago, the workshops are used by the local council, and the old married quarters are being demolished and a new housing estate is being built. The old officers mess is being kept.

Old Park Barracks Dover, home of the Junior Leaders Regiment RE is now some sort of lorry park, last time I drove past that way the guardroom and armoury were about all that was left.

V. Sad.

Woolwich barracks, the home of the Royal Artillery since 1716, has recently been taken over by a firm in high visibility scarlet tunics who provide security guards for posh houses in central London.

A sad tale.

I really would like one of you blokes to confirm that the Castle in Brecon

South Wales, still exists.

In 1957, I did my Lancejacks course there, with the South Wales

Borderers. Great museum, with all the stuff from Rorkes Drift.

Made a great impression on me at that age.

Look at the barracks in BAOR that still exist, and the UK has just about

bowled all their history.
