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.

(The pictures included in the article also explain the presence of a scottish piper with the brit contingent suggesting the German Engrs may get used to his music).


British Engineers exercise with Bundesweht opposite numbers with M3 Amphibious Bridge Rig on the Weser,
23 Amph Engr Platoon eqpt is housed in the Herzog von Braunschweig Kaserne for the next 3 years!   whilst the soldiers commute daily from Bielefeld.

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 !
