Sobraon Barracks - History
1880: The black and white picture (above) is of the New Barracks were completed in the late 1870s, as a base for the North Lincolnshire Regiment. The Lincolnshire Regiment was raised in 1685. The name SOBRAON refers to the Regiment's most famous Battle Honour, gained during the Sikh Wars (the Battle of Sobraon, 10th February 1846).
2006: The colour photograph (above) is how Sobraon Barracks looked 136 years later. The gateway, the guradroom and much of the perimeter wall has gone, but despite that, the old place still looks very much as it did in 1880.
