Staff of No.27 SDB, Hannover, Germany 51-52.
This vintage photo is of the staff of one No.27 Service Detention Barracks (SDB) in Hanover, Germany - 1951/52 which was in it's day deemed to be one of the toughest SDBs within the Canadian Army. Many service personnel discovered that fact as a result of their lack indiscretion that led to them serving time in this establishment and came out more highly disciplined then they could have ever otherwise imagined. In fact; some went on to have very successful careers developing into above average soldiers.
