Restoration of 48 Post Gilbertfield in 25 Group AYR.


Latest (10oct07)

I'm trying to source some original canvas post chairs for the restoration of Gilbertfield Post. Condition is not such an issue as I can always have them cleaned but I'm trying to get something original before I go down the route of buying modern equivalents.

Many thanks,
Graeme Finlayson

Compo Rations

Hi All,
I'm trying to find some tins of compo rations for Gilbertfield Post but of yet I've had no luck, hoping perhaps some ROCA members out there may be able to help!

Many thanks,

Hi All,
I'm on the look out for a PE Set to help with the restoration of Gilbertfield Post near Glasgow. I know there are quite a few kicking about, but alas I'm always just that bit too late when it comes to finding out!

If anybody has one or knows the whereabouts of one, regardless of condition, I'd love to hear from you!

Request (28aug06)

I've searched high and low and I've been unable to find an FSM Probe Rod to finish off the restoration. The Post is now lucky enough to have a BPI and even a GZI but the probe rod is the last major piece of equipment I'm lacking.

I'm sure that there must be one out there in a shed or garage somewhere and I would like to appeal to ROCA Members who may have one they would like to sell or donate, to contact me at tocsin@mac.com

Many thanks in anticipation,

Last Request

The restoration of 48 Post Gilbertfield in 25 Group AYR is almost complete, having spent more hours of work than I would care to remember! I've managed to purchase most of the major items of equipment including a BPI, Siren, PDRM82F and FSM Dome

but

I'm still desperate to track down a final piece of illusive equipment... the GZI!

I'm sure there must be a GZI in a shed or garage somewhere in the UK that could be put to good use at 48 Post helping to preserve an important part of our Cold War heritage. If anybody could help me find a GZI or any small items from the Post Inventory then I would be eternally grateful.
