PostSubject: Army barracks in Hamburg   4/4/2011, 02:16

Hi all,

In 1951 and 1952 my RE unit travelled [ a few times] from Osnabruck to Hamburg; which was our destination should the Russians attack. We would never have even got halfway!!

Question, from memory we stayed in a barracks, not too far from city centre; and believe on the opposite side of the street was a convent or something similar

Any idea when this barracks were?

Cheers
Tony

Thanks Pborn4 for the two replies

Has anyone got details of Transit Camps 124 and 125, their formation / disbanded; what unit ran these; is there any history available

Regards
Sapper
