Demolition at Ludgershall

Recommended Posts

Nothing obvious happening when I drove past yesterday and today. I assume they'll be pulling up the railway sidings as well?

That's odd Andy as that press report was 4th August. Not been up there for years, not since they had carboots in sheds.

The rails are being lifted now but interestingly there are reports of proposals to use part of the site for vehicle storage again.

Just across the fields from my old unit at Perham Down.

During the 70s it seemed to be full of Snow Cats as that was what we used to see most of.

As a slight aside. My very first posting when I was attached to 26 Engineer regiment. Was in Iserlohn B.A.O.R, & the barracks there. Were typical of ex WWII Whermacht Barracks. Termed during the Third Reich as 'Seydliz Kasserne'.

After the Prussian General of old.

 

It was then renamed by The Unit as Corunna Barracks. They seem to have transferred this name, on the units redeployment to the UK?

 

I enjoyed my 3 years there in Germany. & looked recently at a website. Of Former B.A.O.R unit Barracks & Locations there.

I was saddened to see that Corrunna had been handed back to the Germans. & my Old L.A.D Workshop area. Was now a Concrete Firms Base of Work!

 

The Accomodation Blocks had been converted internally to flats. & sold to the public. :embarrassed: They like MANY similar layouts

During my time during the Cold War. Interestingly, STILL had the Mauser rifle Racks in the walls of the Corridors!

 

It is saddening to Me, & I know a lot of others on Here. Who served in Germany. To see parts of our Lives, & indeed History. The Federal German Government, want to see demolished & 'Erased' from the History Books. As a time Period of 'Embarrasment' to the German nation!....:undecided:
