Dear Sirs,
I am trying to find out which Barracks the Regiment were based at during their stay at Wuppertal and also Minden. The dates would also be much appreciated.

Robert Bonner:
Most of the information you are looking for is recorded in either Bell's history of the Manchester Regiment 1922- 1948 or in Difficulties Be Damned by Patrick Mileham.

1st Manchesters were stationed at Dunham Park, Altrincham in the early summer of 1948 and moved back to Germany on 1st July.  Stationed in Manchester Barracks, Wuppertal - a fine pre-war German Army barracks.

To Berlin and Wavell Barracks in April 1950, to Malaya in 1951 - 1954.  Back to Berlin in 1955 and then to Minden in 1956, returning to the UK in 1957 prior to amalgamation with the Liverpool Regiment in 1958. I cannot remember the name of the barracks in Minden.

rafboy:
Just to complete the picture.  The Barracks on Penang Malay were named Minden Barracks.
