Looking up the drive from the entrance, towards what was to become the Officers Mess but in 1956/7 was temporary billets for ORs' This is the same drive as depicted on the Lincoln page (link) & the drive in the top photograph. Photo by Allan Johnson
This was the entrance to the Royal Signals barracks in Burton Rd and also the approximate location of the Guard Room marked X. But now just one big housing estate

The Naffi Shop was past the RS guardroom, then through
the hole in the brick wall going into Lincolns lines . Naffi for the Signals was on the road bearing left past the armoury, barbers shop was on the left, Naafi club was opposite more or less. A single story building past there on the left was the Osbourne troop spiders. Photo by Allan Johnson.
Even these photographs above are probably now out of date as the housing estate and playing fields have enroached on the old camp
