Good to know there is a British presence back in Minden, though their stay will be short.

As I said before I had many happy years in the town in the 1960's.

Hmmm !   Ref your edited version.......  Makes my comment  superfluous....
For those who are now baffled, I should explain the original wording for the later "opposite numbers" was "Counterparts" , or should have been if the "o" hadn't been missed out in error.
Or as a Freudian Slip !

Anglo German Engineer Bridging Regiment to be operational in Minden by 2023.  Equipped with the M3 bridging rig the present constellation has integrated well and the British and German soldiers (male and female) are competent in each other's job.
A further 180 BR soldiers are to join the Pionierbataillon 130, a permanent liaison officer is to be embedded in the German HQ Staff.  
On current plans the soldiers will commute daily to the Bundeswehr Barracks in  Minden and will live in British Barracks in Sennelager - families will live on a Married Quarters estate with the usual Garrison amenities - shopping, medical, social support, schools, BFBS TV and Radio, and a British Legion Club.
