PostSubject: Memories of Trenchard Barracks, Celle   19/2/2012, 14:29

Hello all,

I've recently been asked to create a commemorative booklet marking the end of the British Armys' presence in Celle, and as such was keen to source several recollections from various armed forces members that have served in Celle from 1945 onwards. If you have, or know anyone who has been based in Trenchard Barracks, I would be much obliged if you could post a brief note on your time there and what unit you were based with, brownie points for any photos included!

Many thanks,

Matt

I was never stationed in Celle, but I do remember in the early 60,s the watchman at the NAAFI being found murdered, it was over Christmas one year, I believe they eventually charged 3 soldiers with the crime, one was a wo2 if my memory is correct, anybody know any more? Ian.

Maryann

Welcome, look forward to your future postings about your memories of life in Celle

Think you may have the wrong barracks, 94 were longstanding occupants of Taunton not Trenchard Barracks.

If you have not already found it, go to the Master Home Page on this site, then click on Locations, then Celle and you should then have a choice of the individual Barracks in Celle, some with photos

Through research from original documentation by JPW and myself can confirm the following post 8 May 45

23 May 45 – HQ 43rd (Wessex) Infantry Division command 30th Corps moved into Trenchard Barracks and disbanded by 31 July 46 replaced by 5th Infantry Division in Braunschweig

The RAF moved in and was handed back to the Army mid Jan 48

15 Feb 48 – HQ Hannover District formed from 7th Armoured Division on 14 Jan 48 and moved from Bad Rothenfelde north-west of Bielefeld to Trenchard Barracks

early Mar 49 7th Armoured Division reforms at Trenchard Barracks moving to Verden-Aller late 50

Unable to update the Celle page at this time as http://baor-locations.org is under a major refit thanks to Mike Royal Signals
