refering to Robert's battalion history on the Museum site (http://www.tameside.gov.uk/museumsgalleries/mom/history

the closest I can see to Durham is this quote :-

Quote
The (5th) battalion reorganised at Stokesley, near Middlesborough. Later to West Aukland, to Wortley in the Sheffield area and, in the autumn, to Wheatley, near Oxford. In November to Felixstowe, Suffolk. In March 1941 the battalion moved to Southend and in the summer to Orwell Park, between Felixstowe and Ipswich
