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)

RSM, Phil, ? Photo belongs in the Far East photo section and is there so has been deleted from here.

From the top down they are:

63rd_PTC_Shooting_Team_Cup_Winners.

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

Comments by Robert Bonner:
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.
