PostSubject: Stornaway Barracks Lemgo   15/4/2013, 15:14

Only recently joined this forum, I checked the site for Stornaway barracks Lemgo (previosly known as Spiegleberg Kasserne) to see if my old unit got a mention, it did not, my unit was 14th ARMY SIGNAL REGT it took over there in April 1955 and stayed there until dissbanded in late 1958, it was a full 4 squadron regement and took over the entire garrison except for 1 ASSU Squadron which was there when we arrived and still there when we left. I can only guess why it is not mentioned in the history of Stornaway it was set up as the signal regt for an Army that did not exsist (or at least had not exsisted since 1945) CO was Lt Col A.C.Cox OBE (George to his fellow officers) Adj was Capt J.R.Gibson. Could whoever administers the site include this unit in the list of occupiers, there might still be a few alive who remember it.

Welcome to the forum and thanks for your input but there will be a delay in updating BAOR-Locations.org due to a recent change of ownership…quote

"11 Air Formation Signal Regiment – Buckeburg moved to Stornoway Barracks Lemgo 1952

14 Army Signal Regiment formed Stornoway Barracks Lemgo 1955, it was joined by the Lubbecke District Signal Squadron (which had been 3 Squadron/19 Army Group Signal Regiment). The regiment is not listed after 1957"

Royal Signals history really is a mystery and only as good as those who wrote it down...clearly both regiments could not be both there at the same time…need to research further

Many thanks your help is appreciated…here is a clip from 1953
