Verden Units Royal Engineers - old family photo Unadju11
Hello everyone and thank you for allowing me to join.

I am researching my family history and would like to identify the unit shown on this photo, which is a cropped version of the original.

I have the original version of this photo which may be of further interest to other members should anyone wish to see it.

Amazing piece of post WW2 history
127th (Highland) Field Regiment of Headquarters Royal Artillery 51st (Highland) Infantry Division were in Nampcel Kaserne later Sheil Barracks from 9 Nov 45 to disbandment/suspended animation in Mar 46, therefore this photo was taken before Mar 46

Headquarters Royal Engineers 51st (Highland) Infantry Division
9 Jul 45 – Gibraltar (Kavallerie) Kaserne later Gibraltar Barracks Verden
17 Jun 45 – 239 Field Park Company with 16 Bridging Platoon arrived
21 Jul 45 – 276 Field Company arrived

Hope this helps, would appreciate a copy of this photo, will send a private message

Thanks AJK for sending the image can confirm your uncle's unit is 239 Field Park Company (being pointed out), prior to Verden the unit was in Beckdorf south-east of Harsefeld, Landkreis Stade, this photo would have been taken on Lindhooper Strasse just before the entrance to Caithness Barracks that appears to have formerly been named Alamein Barracks, have an interest having served in Verden 67 to 69, thanks again
