As viewed from top down:

Berlin - Spandau Jail.  May 1950.  Lieutenant P N St J Saunders and B Company 1st Bn taking over guard duties from the Americans. In addition to a multi-national staff of prison warders the four occupying nations each took it in turns to provide a military guard. This particularly suited the Russians as it allowed them free access into the British Sector of the City.

Pre-Germany photos

As viewed from the top down:

My father Arthur (Phil) Phillips 1st Bn is in the back row 3rd from the left.  This photo would have been taken in Dunham Park around 1946.
Seated L to R: (63rd PTC) CSM Peter Derbyshire, Major Martin Archdale, Lieut Colonel Philip Buchan, Captain Roy Baker MC, unknown Sgt

The two lower photos were taken outside Caxton Hall on 24th May 1947.  My mother Stella Margurete Phillips nee Caldwell served two periods in the ATS.  Her family lived in Timperley, the family home where I was brought up by my grandmother until I was 7 was 391 Stockport Road Timperley, it was an Italian restaurant when I last visited the area.

I found these amongst my parents old photos. They was taken in Berlin, I'm not sure which parade it was and don't know who is in the car or the officer on his own.

The officer in the car is Brigadier DR Morgan the British Berlin Commander - a most excellent officer. The occasion is the King's birthday Parade on 8 June 1950.  The battalion, together with 1st Royal Fusiliers and 1st Black Watch paraded at the Olympic Stadium on the Maifeld parade ground.
