I read Les Rutherford's description with interest. I was with 25 Field Sqn from 1966 to 1969. 4 Div Engrs was redesignated 26 Engr Regt before its move to Iserlohn, not '35' as Les describes it.

Best regards.

thanks steve yes it was Corruna barracks yep i remember now my eldest son was born in BMH iserlohn..
i thought id served in 44 field support at Willich after iserlohn but i think im mistaken it may have been 40 field support
i know when i arrived at Corruna there was a armoured bridging squadron there.
my wife and i lived in Hemer first then up on the hill near the irish rangers then we moved into army quarters but i cant remember where Delinghofen perhaps.
thanks again
phil

A small world Phil it was 40 Army Support Regiment I came from Willich to Iserlohn in Nov 77 after a two year tour there you find the history of the place here on the first page
http://royalengineersbaor.blogspot.com/
Went back for a reunion couple of years ago and there is another planned next year not sure if I will be going or not let me know if you want details...regarding the Armoured Squadron at Iserlohn that became 2 Field Support Squadron in 1977
All the best
