I also notice that there is a gap 1965 to 1967!!! The 1st Bn. the Devonshire and Dorset Regiment (Bloody 11th) were stationed there during that time. After training I was posted to my unit there in October 1966 which was 1DandD's.
Beside us there was The 15th/19th kings Own Hussars in Buller Barracks. the Sherwood Forrester's were in Swinton Barracks across the huge playing fields and the Green Jackets were at Oxford Barracks near to the BMH.

My regt (2nd Field RA) were also in Muenster at that time.

We were in a dump called Portsmouth Bks, on Hoherheckenweg and a lot of us lived in the brand new Interbau married quarters, in Coerde.

My battery was Close Support Battery for the Foresters.

Battle Group Training was carried out in Libya in those days!

Thanks for that....yes I remember you guys but couldn't remember your RA number!!!
Do you remember the mass bands ....you could hear it for miles!!!!

Yes Libya was the Battle Group live firing area! When we were there in 1967 we got caught up in the 6 day war ...Israel v Egypt....Enniskillen Dragon guards lost two guys when their Ferret was petrol bombed in Benghazi. My Coy was just into the Battle Run when we were called back and had to dash to Benghazi to support the Anglians there and the Dragons who were under sever pressure. The rest of our Battalion had got there before us and after traveling across the Roman road to avoid Dernah over night ...we were ordered back to RAF El Adam. We then along with 15th/19th Squadron and your battery prepared for a real Battle....we were called 'Zebra force' (should have been Camel) and our task was that if the positions in Benghazi were attacked by the Algerians who were in Libya we were to head across the desert as a Battle group to take them on!!! As it happened nothing did and we enjoyed an extended tour there and we dismantled the ABU in the Desert and packed it off to Cyprus from Tobruck!!! Nearly three months in Libya and 10 days in Malta for our trouble.....happy days.

That would've been "O" Bty. They rotated with us and walked smack into it all !

We had neighbours from the Devon & Dorsets in the flat next door to us.
The name was Avery, he might've been Terry. They were from Plymouth and had two little girls (or "maids", as they said it). Nice, quiet couple.

The thing is, at this time my wife and I were suffering from a terrible, burning itching. It turned out that we had scabies. We were horrified. It turned out that the D&D had picked the scabies up while they were in Larzac, our neighbour's children infected our son while they were playing and the parasite passed to us.

Apparently the D&D picked it up from bedding in Larzac.

your memory is not failing you!!! Yes Terry Avery....and thats not all that was contracted in Larzac ha ha!!! Yes ...the scabies were a bad dose to get!!! I got them in Malta when we were stationed there 1970 -71. I slept in a strange bed out of camp and I paid for it!!!! Back then it was liquid DDT that burnt you in sensitive areas ha ha
