can anyone tell me the name and location of a Junior Signals (possibly JNR Leader) depot that was situated somewhere in the north east ? I have vague memories of going there for a boxing tournament in 1982. Had to get a train to Newcastle and ended up at a barracks full of junior signallers . It was very dark and foggy if that helps ... :eek:
Is it still in use ? Are there any sigs guys here who fought in the junior army inter company championships in 82 ?
Cheers in advance

That was the JSW in Albermale Bks, near Ouston.

It is still in use and is the home of an Artillery Regiment now.

I seem to remember running along a disused runway . is this the same place or am I getting confused with another dark foggy place with a runway ?

Yes, that'd be Albemarle.
Now home of 39 Regt RA.
