Does anyone remember the barracks at Rath and at Lohausen? I was there
in 1957-9

Rath was RAOC, 2Div OFP, and another Unit dealing with stuff arriving on a railway siding. Another camp was adjacent, a huge store of jerry cans.

Lohausen was the large barracks adjacent to Dusseldorf airport. I think the main unit was RASC, but there were also Engineer, Dental, RMP, 43Army Education Centre, and others I may have forgotten.

Hi Schooley,

The barracks by the airport were Caernarvon barracks when I was there (79-82 and 91-96 - although they shut in 94) at least that's where our dentist and youth club were! Think the RMP's were there as well but they may have moved out at least in part to the Naafi complex at Golzheim (my mum worked there for a bit I think).

hope that helps.
