Thanks Paul, I was sure I hadn't imagined it. I don't recall you from the TRC - probably a different shift. Anyway I was on detachment during most of 1974 and all of 1975 at HQ 7 Arty Bde Sig Sqn in Dortmund.
Thanks your help on Catterick. I will look it up.

Joe. It was the Harewood Club or the NAAFI Club. I think that it was on Scotton Road in the centre and near the swimming pool. There is a facebook group of Catterick Camp memories, lots of photos of it... [www.facebook.com]
I was also down the hole at Krefeld 1973-75.

Could someone settle an argument?
I am sure there was a large NAAFI club somewhere in Catterick Garrison in the 1970s. I think it was called the ”Harewood or Harwood Club”. I don't recall the exact location.
I think it got closed down by the RMPs because of the punch-ups and was eventually demolished. Thanks

BAOR Barracks.
I was stationed at 3 barracks in Rhine Army (22 Sigs - Lippstadt, 16 Sigs - Krefeld and 7 Arty Bde HQ and Sig Sqn - Dortmund). At every one of these places there were always rumours of underground facilities which were previously used in WW2 by the German Army. I never saw any evidence of this, or met anyone who did.
Was this just beer fuelled NAAFI spiel, or what?
Your comments appreciated.

Can anyone throw any light on the following? I was in Albuhera Camp Fayid 1954-1955. One of our guard duties was the Officers’ Mess, a separate building in a different compound. In 1958 I became a licensed Radio Amateur and in the 1980s used to talk to another ham, whilst going to work, whose name was Arthur Dorset: he claimed he was the Senior Security Officer for the Zone, and described the two caravans sited behind the Officer’ Mess that were his Ham Shack. I remember those caravans and looking inside.

For Ian Newson, msge 3287.
I was one of the skivers of 3 GHQ Sigs, and Albuhera camp. My residence at the time was tent F11. I was in one of the Operating Watches, although I cannot remember which one. I only discovered this excellent site two days ago, and so far have located about 150 photos relating to my time there, which I will submit in due course. Afterwards I worked with 4 people from the camp, until I retired.
