National service 1959/1961

I was stationed at Gordon barracks Hameln in 1960/1962. I was wondering if the Barracks was still there? I met some wonderful local people and even after 50 odd years I still remember them.

Hi Glenburnie

We are still here! My husband is based here (attached arms) but the flag comes down on June 14th.

There is a weekend of parades and a party to celebrate before we all go our seperate ways.

Hope this helps!
