    I’m Jonny Jones, I served in Binden Barracks from 1963 to the end of 65, with 35 coy RASC. I was in B troop. The staff-sgt was Paddy McDonald, also cpl Jerry Day, Driver’s: Dave letchford, jock Sinclair’s, Brummy Williams, Jonny showler,, twitch Waldron. Anna served in the Naafi bar.
    There were many laughs had during the time bridging, Lite bridging, Heavy Girder and the heavy ferry. I always tried to get the safety boat(cussy job).
    Cpl malony’s brother was Sgt-major 10coy.
    35 coy got a new OC from a staff car coy and he thought we could keep our 10 tonner’s in the same gleaming state. This culminated in sit-in in the Naafi by both coy’s. Caused quite a hu-hah.
    Hope you may recognize the a/m lads.
    Speak to you later

    1. Thank you so much for your comment! I t is always interesting to read all of your memories!

    Thanks for these photos. I was 10 Coy RASC Chief Clerk in 1962, based in Building 6. I saw the last of the National Servicemen leave. A great bunch of lads. I left Hameln in June 1963 for a 2 year tour of Bahrain.
