Hi Dazzer! is this the vogelsang that was used as a tank and artillery and infantry firing range after 1945? If it is I remember taking casualties from there as a result of manoeuvers. I was detachment as an ambulance driver for about a month.



Further to the above, I visited the Google site and confirmed that it was used by the British Army for about twelve years after 1945 as a tank, artillery, and infantry combined training ground after which I was handed over to the Belgian Army for similar use.

Although it was handed over to the Belgians, the British Army continued to use it, my last "Training" visit was circa 1980.

The entranceway had a metal archway with a running soldier and the words "More sweat, less blood" in Flemmish.

Spent many a week doing Regimental training at Vogesang.

Being run over by tanks and concocting Molatov cocktails.

Not sure that the Army could get away with running you over in todays "Risk assesment" culture?

The link has a few pics that some of you may remember. I remember hating those steps up to the cookhouse first thing in the morning.
