Arborfield Barracks
 
Based here in late 1947 were the following REME units (hence the name of the Barracks).  
 
8 Wksp Ctrl Unit
9 Lt Wksp Coy
81 Local Manufacturing Unit
1 X Ray Repair Unit
 
There were 235 REME soldiers based here with 1600 civilians being  fed here daily. The Barracks is presumed to be the  former Panzer Division Depot in the Rahlstedt suburb of  Hamburg. Its name was later changed to Adams Barracks  after the REME had departed and was eventually returned to German hands where it was renamed Graf-Goltz-Kaserne whilst used as a military establishment between 1955 - 1961.
