San Sebastian Barracks Korbecke

#1
Any one remember San Seb at Korbecke (Near Soest). I had the misfortune to experience my first posting from 8 Sigs there. I found these pics on Flash Earth the other day and it's changed quite a bit!



Bottom Camp

I was MT troop 78-82. Ex RCT not a bleep I'm afraid. The memories of the Shack, Big Ben, singing the Dambusters song pissed at the dam all come flooding back. Great memories of 3 Div Sigs Regt. I recall units at Salamanca called Taskforce Echo and Charlie, Signals loose in 432's.
It looks totally different now to how i remember it

I drove up there last year while I was in mannheim with the spams. It's a technology park / industrial estate now. MQ's are full of east europeans and rougher than tidworth on a friday night.

I remember the camp was supposed to be used as a refugee camp but when they inspected it during the handover declared it unfit for human habitation and flattened it.

I was there 90-91 (Oscar Troop, 2 Sqn), with a trip on Op Granby for a few months, and then transferred to 206 at Salamanca just before 3 Div moved to Bulford and brought 206 in to the fold as it were.

:D ..It's a bit late (but have just become a member), I live in Soest and having also served in San Seb....yes i'm a BLEEEEEEP...I can tell you its going well as an industrial estate.The old rugby field still gets used but only for Baseball by the Garrison Club baseball team. Yes here in Soest there is an International Garrison Club with Brits, Belgians ,Americans, and of course German----ex soldiers. And the Beer still tastes good...Prost
