A PTI named from the Devon & Dorsets was shot several times in an ambush by 2 suspected IRA gunmen in 1979, about 1 mile from the Barracks. The PTI survived by running away from them with seven or eight bullet wounds and collapsed outside the Civillian Hospital. He survived and the gunmen escaped.

The PTI being L/CPL Sims. He was shot and survived on 10 March 1980. 
 
This picture of Belfast Bks was taken in March 2010. When looking from the MRS gate they seem to be building houses where the transport park was. The old MRS is surrounded by wire fence that has sensors on it as I found to my shock (electric!!). The workmen have no idea why.
