Definitely A Blast from the past,
CSM 'Charlie' Mutters - wasn't he later commissioned ??? ??? - I was one of  his Funeral  Bearer's way back in 1954 at Ashton. I remember it well, unfortunately we had problems getting the coffin out of the bed-room, but we succeeded and then ALL of us apologised to Charlie - ah well. - Rest in Peace Charlie - we meant well.

The RSM Lomas photo belongs in the Far East photos and is there so has been deleted from here.

As viewed from top down they are:

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.

Warrant Officers and Sergeants Mess_Wuppertal.  CSM George Osborne on left

Sergeants Phillips is 2nd from the right with my mother Stella Phillips next to him. Sergeant 'Tinker' Bell on right.  (Cliff)

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.

A blast from the past. I thought these were lost from the Forum.
