Welcome Matthew
You will discover your grandfather would have been part of 7th Armoured Division RE, as the division was disbanded in Dec 47 then became 1 Engineer Training Establishment stationed at Holzminden, in Mar 49 7th Armoured Division was reformed and 1 ETE formed 21st Field Engineer Regiment moving to Gordon Barracks Hameln Oct 49, then on to Assaye Barracks Neinburg Nov 51
Hope this helps and good luck with your research

Matthew,
I am sure my neighbour served with this unit, along with other duties at Hannover, which included recovering dead tanks littering the countryside from WW2.

He was also at Hameln, when many war criminals were brought there, to the prison, to be hanged for their war crimes by Albert Pierrepoint.

Sadly my friend died about a year ago.

Matthew

Welcome, members of this site always enjoy responding to the type of interesting challenge you have posed

It may be possible to identify other locations your grandfather may have served in prior to the Hameln move from his Record of Service.
