Ebrington Barracks

A really really shit place to be posted, now fortunately gone. A small triangle which you had to run round about 3 times to do a BFT and which overlooked a dirty brown river called the Foyle, and Londonderry itself (which may well be a great place, but no-one ever really found out because the nearest place you could go out was a prod filled hole called Coleraine about 30 mileas away).

In the Early 70's this was an interesting posting. We would waken to the sound of small arms fire around the old foyle bridge and some of the explosions would actually rock our barrack block. During the Prod Strike the barracks had no power for long periods, so we had to purloin a Generator just to get the Squadron Bar lit.
