Shocked Surprisingly no mention of the Radio Relay Stations which were a joint enterprise between the RAF Signals (Ground Radio) and Royal Signals. I served at all three radio sites whilst attached to RAF Goch between 1960 & 1961. I was one of the last Service personnel to be shipped from Harwich to the Hook of Holland & then onward into Germany by troop train. By late 61, early 62 UK forces were airlifted to & from RAF Wildenrath as I remember with Silver Citys Airways operating the first services.

Welcome and thanks for your contribution you have added two more RAF units/locations to the master data. If you go to the Home Page then in Locations then RAF Stations you will find the existing list including role

Presumably Goch was linked to Laarbruch but where exactly was Uedem?

Uedem is about mid way between Goch and Xanten. Hope this helps.

Uedem was part of the radio relay network which stretched throughout West Germany and into Holland and Belgium. My posting was to 2nd Allied Tactical Airforce, and my base was Goch, although that being said a slightly confusing situation arose when on arrival at RAF Munchen Gladbach, having completed arrival formalities, within a week I had to complete clearance procedure and proceed independently to Goch which became my home base.
There was a difference between 2TAF personnel and 2ATAF but I was deemed too unimportant to have an explanation!

My Father was Sqn Ldr E.A. Barrett.
He was Senior officer at Goch from 1960 to about 1963.
It was a signals / multi nationality station. He had Germans, Belgians, English, Dutch and I think, Canadians working for him there.
As a teenager we often went to Laarbruch, swimming in an open air heated pool. Quite a novelty.
My fathers commanding officer was a Dutch guy who lived in a large house on top of a hill.
He was posted from there to Munchen Gladbach / Rhindhalen.
Apologies for any spelling mistakes.
