Steve,

Normally I'd avoid such a huge subject as this !

My first posting was to 24 Med Regt RA in early '59 They resided in Assaye Bks Nienburg.

Sharing the camp with us was 45 Field Park Squadron RE who I believe were in residence when 24 moved in.

I've seen no mention of the squadron at all ![/quote]

Brum
Was only following the path of 4 Fd Coy/Squadron...45 will get mentioned in time but here goes for now
Nov 47 – 45 Field Park Squadron formed from 145 Field Park Squadron disbanded Dec 47
Jul 49 – 45 Field Park Squadron reformed Holzminden part of 21 Field Engineer Regiment formed Holzminden from 1 Engineer Training Establishment Jul 49 to Gordon Barracks Hameln Oct 49 to Assaye Barracks Neinburg Nov 51 becoming 45 Field Support Squadron Jan 68 moved to Quebec Barracks Onsbrück 1996 to 28 Engineer Regiment – Gordon Barracks Hameln by 1999 and still there...but with a gap!
Cheers
Steve

Thanks for that Steve.

I can now rest secure in the knowledge that the old memory hasn't COMPLETELY packed up !

Its a pity really, the RCCM (Royal Corps of Cabbage Mechanics) does have a certain ring to it

All joking aside.

In view of events since WW2, how come no Royal Parachute Regt, Royal Special Air Service ?
It's a mystery to this old codger.
.................................................

Not sure just what the criteria is for, perhaps, awarding a crown to the cap badge & red piping round the No1 dress cap, ( which you love !). No doubt someone well up on these things can advise.

But looking at those at those so endowed, it seems that they are all major
formations, ones which might be loosely termed as being support units in a broad sense......

None of the Guards infantry regts are "Royals", though one or two of the old infantry regts did have crowned badges......... light infantry units. Black Watch, etc., which seems to indicate that a crown alone doesn't imply being in the "Royal" category. But regts with a broader base are termed "Royal"..... R.Sigs, REs, RA., RLC, etc, etc. Maybe if all the PBI were grouped under one banner there'd be Royal Infantry.

Would have expected no less from a proud Sapper but as we have discussed off line there are a couple of others who will give them a run for their money

The Vets at Sennelager are, without doubt,the longest serving unit in Germany with unbroken service in the same location. Having arrived in Senelager in September 1945, by the time they leave for North Luffenham they will have easily overtaken 14 Squadron's length of service in Germany

From a parochial point of view the 7 element of the REME Battalion in Fallingbostel will similarly have overtaken your Sappers by the time they leave for Leuchars (and with fewer moves post VE Day, only Itzehoe and Kunsebek)

Moin Peter
Forget the moves and locations the longest serving still stands with "sappers and miners"...as 7 Armd Div was disbanded in late 1947 and brought back Mar 49...let us see if the dogs get a mention...the beat goes on
Best regards

32 (Minden) Bty were over there in 1759, August 1st to be precise. Not continuously, of course, as then we helped the Germans put one over on the Frogs. Since then we swapped mates for a couple of wars & now it looks like the French & Germans might be closer to each other than us....... ( EU, etc....)

And as an aside, I don't rate that current uniform on the video. Looks much too casual for a formal parade ......... Hrumph !

You have opened a can of worms here, we are likely to have certain senior officers claiming "their Regiments" arrived in Germany even earlier and fought in the Battles of Blenheim and/or Dettingen

In the meantime Steve and I will continue our discussions on the relative merits of 7/14 units ( I need to double check my facts before going public again)
