Buller Barracks 1963 - a Memory of Aldershot.
I was a "Civvie" pay officer at the old Buller Barracks from 1962/63/64. This was just as N
ational Service was ending. My main Corps was RASC plus 165 Provost Co RMP. Best memories was that 1Battalion and also 2Battalion RASC had numerous Professional Footballers..doing their time. Weds afternoons were enjoyed playing at Aldershot FC against their first team. Most games ended in the soldiers (Mainly who were 1st Division in the Football League), thrashing Aldershot by scores of 6 Nil at least!
Great times. Could do with some sort of call up today?
Sorry to see the barracks demolished, for NEW Buller to be built. Sadly these barracks are today deserted, making way for the new Civilian Town to be constructed.
