I have never heard of Cluvental Bks in Verden, they may have been the only other site occupied by the Brits - the Barracks Stores, RASC, Verden, (these were taken over by the RAOC on formation of the RCT and retitled Accomodation Store Units) was large site with plenty of open space which would have been ideal for the caravans, the distance quoted of about two miles from Caithness Bks is about right and was close to the railway line running through the southern part of Verden. My father was the OIC of the RASC Barracks Stores Verden from 1952 to 56 and I knew the site as a boy as we often had social functions there with the staff, mil and civ, my father had a large putting course laid out on the lawned areas which may account for my love of golf. As a matter of interest the Bluebird caravans were also used in Liebenau in 1962.

Hello, I was at Verden from 73-77 and used to babysit for some pads who lived here I can't remember what it was called then but Cluventhal does not ring any bells.It was still a stores depot to the south of Verden near the railway and some of the barrack blocks had been converted into quite spacious flats for the pads. Nice quiet area well away from nosey RSMS etc that the pads used to prefer to the other MQ's which were only 400 yds from Caithness.

I've looked on Google Earth and there is a Cluventalstraße in Verden and at the southern end next to the railway lines is what could well be a barracks. Maybe this is the elusive Cluvental Bks?

On the subject of the mobile homes. I arrived in Verden in Sep '69 and left again in Mar '73. My recollection was that the mobile homes were at the back of Shiel Bks past the Div HQ building.

Many of the pads were out at Dörverden, south of town and I think some might have been as far away as Liebenau.
