RAPC Pay Office-Ashton Under Lyne

Discussion in 'Military History and Militaria' started by Furryturd, Sep 24, 2009.

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. I tried this in the AGC forum but I assume they are all too young to know the answer.

    I am trying to piece together the missing bits of family history and part of this involves the officer's Pay Office at Ashton Under Lyne.

    I am aware that it used to be in Pownall's Mill on Stockport Rd, Manchester (also known as Daisy Mill) which still exists but moved to Ashton Under Lyne around 1956. I am aware that it was behind Ladysmith Barracks (Manchester Regiment) but I am trying to locate the exact position. I think it is the site where a school now sits but some help would be appreciated.
  2. Don't know if this helps


    and this lot knocked it down


    Half way down page
  3. So it is the land where the school is; the open land behind the school on Rose Hill Road all the way across to the derelict hard standings behind Hazlehurst Road.
