My Dad worked with the GSO from 1952 to 1984 at Trenchard for 633 MCTG- RCT. He was a Staff Superintendent. One of his last CO's was Maj. Vice (Wice?).
Trenchard Bks was known to me as von Seeckt Kaserne, Hohe Wende 22, Celle.
When I was young I visited my Dad there and spend a fair amount of time there. I have fond memories from there.
Peter.

PostSubject: Memories TRenchard Bks, Celle   Trenchard Barracks Icon_minitime10/1/2013, 07:12

I was stationed in Trenchard from 1983 - 1986. I was one of the two RMP Corporals that policed the station. At that time 3 RGJ were the resident battalion; 94 Locating Regiment RA were based in Taunton Bks (Heide Kaserne) in the town centre, and 14 (EW) Sig Regt were in the Bks at Scheuen (the name of which escapes me).

It was my first posting to BAOR, although not my last. My MSQ was just up the road in Vorwerk, and our little Police Sation was the old Wehrmacht guardroom just inside the gate of Trenchard (West), next to the Post Office. It is now gone, as it was burnt down by a member of RRF many years ago in an attempt to destroy evidence against him which he believed was held in there.

I was with 633 MCTG-RCT in the Hohe Wende from early 1974 to around early 1977. Can't remember the OC's name but the German Staff Superintendent's name was Herr Burwig.

I never heard the Name Burwig. There were other Guys working with my Father. You don't remember
any other Names? My Dad was Tony Zwikirsch. He retired from there in 1984.

Sorry Peter, no, I don't. Burwig is the only name I remember because I shared an office with him, but of course it's a very long time ago. We had a couple of OCs but I don't remember their names. Do you remember the forest fires in August 1975?  This might jog your memory - I'm not allowed to post live links yet  - look up Fire on the Lüneburg Heath on Wikipedia. Did your Dad ever mention that? We were all deployed to evacuate civilians from their isolated farms and the fuel and ammo dump at Ironside Bks in the forest at Scheuen.

633 was through the first Trenchard Barracks gate on the Hohe Wende. The 633 MCTG offices shared the admin block with RMPs and the Posties. The RMPs had an all ranks mess on the top floor which we all used. The Prince of Wales's Own Regiment of Yorkshire was stationed further down the road in the main camp at the time.

Cheers, Chris

Hi Chris, thanks for your Post. I certainly know of the Forest Fire. I also know Ironside Bks in Scheuen.
Some of my Friends played Soccer with the Soldiers there. We, my Family, lived just past Scheuen in a little Place called Waldkater. I left Germany in October 1974 and immigrated to Canada. My Parents moved to Celle a while after.
Yes, 633 was the first Gate, my Dad's Office was in the first Building on the right once you past through the Gate. I have been there many times to see my Dad and also was invited to some Functions. I remember meeting my Dad's Boss, I think his name was Major Vice. They had a good Working Relationship. I remember, Dad always speaking well of him. The Main Camp was off limits
for us of course. I remember different Regiments being stationed at the Main Camp.
Cheers, Peter.

Hi Peter, I had been attached to the PCLU in Hohne. I arrived at 633 on Monday 1 April 1974. I remember it well because it was All Fools Day and people were telling me I'd come to work in a mad house!  

So if you left Celle in October of that year there's a small chance we may have met. I've racked my brains but I can't remember your Dad though. Did he by any chance have anything  to  do with sailing at  the Dümmersee Yacht Club, the BAOR sailing training centre? The SQMS at  633 (I can't remember his name either) and I were keen sailors. The main work done by 633 was providing a major source of drivers and 3 tonners and Rovers for the Red Parcels Service for the region covered by 24 Tpt&Mov Regt. RCT.

The SisiGrill schnellimbis is still on the corner of the Hohe Wende and the main drag. I often used to go to a pub on the left on the steep bit of the main road going down into the town. The Kneipe was called Ballands but that's been gone a long time.

In 1977 I was posted to an RCT MSO unit in Steyerberg near Liebenau, part of Nienburg garrison. Last time I was in Celle was when I drove through on a nostalgia trip round Germany 20 years later in 1995.

Off topic: Sad news about Prince Philip,  but he has has a good run for his money. My Dad passed away 4 years ago and would have been 100 this month.

Cheers, Chris

Hi Chris, This is very interesting, even so you don't remember, I'm sure somehow you must have met
and there is a very small chance that we also have crossed Path's.
from what I know, my Dad was in Charge of moving Goods and Mail around. He didn't have anything
to do with Sailing.
Sissi Grill was a popular Spot, I stopped there sometimes as well. My Dad passed away in 2007, he as almost 88 years old. Since my Parents are both gone, I don't visit there much anymore. My last Trip to Celle was 2017 to see my Brother.
Hope you don't mind me asking, where do you live today and how old would you be?
and Yes, sad about Prince Philip but he had a good run indeed.
Cheers, Peter.

Hi Peter, I  am in  my  mid 70s and I have lived in Thailand since 2000 where I have a company. You seem to be a lot  more up to date with Celle than I am. My Mum passed away in November. She was also 96, so I have no reason now to go back to the UK, and I don't know if I'll  ever go back to Europe now.

Do you remember anyone else from 633? There were two young English lads driving Landrovers there. They were the sons of serving army personnel, and I think one was the son of the SQMS, but I guess they would have moved back to the UK when their fathers were posted back there. Maybe you knew them?

Best, Chris

Hi Chris, how small the world really has become, you ended up in Thailand, I'm in Northern Canada.
I'm going to be 70 this year. So we are close in Age.
I didn't know many People at 633, only some of of the People my Dad worked with and and a Driver
and 2 of the Cooks. I'm sure they have passed on by now.
Take care Chris,
Cheers, Peter.

Hi Peter,
After my time in BAOR I moved to Berlin until 1989, then to France, and then here in Thailand 20 years ago.
I've travelled a lot. Canada - one of the few places in the world I've never been! I'd love to go to Quebec, I speak fluent French - and perfekt German of course.

You too, Peter, take care .

Cheers, Chris

Hi Chris, I have not travelled much in my younger days, more so now. Sadly Covid has stopped that
for now. Hopefully we get back to some kind of normal. Canada is a beautiful Country. If you ever want
a Northern Experience, once Covid passes, let me know. I'm really close to Alaska.
Cheers, Peter.

Aw, near Alaska, now that is a long way away - or maybe not, depends which way round the world you go. I have a friend there but we only meet in New York or Washington D.C. I don't get about so much these days. I have to fly around Thailand a lot for my work but 2 hours max is pretty much all I can sit in a cattle class plane seat these days! I went to the UK 4 years ago to see my Dad off - and I literally arrived just in time and that was the last long trip. I couldn't go of course when my Mum passed away.
I spent a week in China very early last year on business but that was only a 2.5 hour flight from here.  But no one has been allowed in or out of Thailand now for a year unless they have special permission. Perhaps we'll get back to normal one of the days then maybe my grown up grandchildren can come.

Look after yourself, Peter.

Chris
