As an elderly and forgetful ex-infantryman, I am trying to recall the surname of the now-deceased late Royal Signals Major General who was Commandant of the National Defence college, Latimer in 1979. His first name was Chris and I believe he died in 1981. I apologise for being a nuisance. PS: My army number as an OR was 23167876. As an officer was 446885.

Good evening,
I come from France and I am looking for information on a British soldier named Patrick O'Neill who served during the WW2. I think he was welcomed into my great-grandparents' home (in Normandie) during the D-Day operations. While doing my research I came across this site and I found a message from Stewart May dated June 1, 2014 about Patrick O'Neill. She talk in this message about a letter sent to my great-grandparents by Patrick O'Neill that I have in my possession. This message having greatly attracted my attention, I would like to post a message on this site.
Sorry for my approximate English and thank you very much in advance for your help.

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.
