I am not ex-BAOR, not even British. I wonder if I can find help here. It is a question which is important in some family research.
In 1945 and 1946 a small unit of the RAF or the Airforce Regiment was stationed and billeted in Wassertrüdingen, a small provincial town in southern Germany, not far from Ansbach – both well outside of what became the British Sector and the territory guarded by the BOAR.
We have that from photos taken at the time and these clearly show RAF personnel. Nevertheless, we cannot find any trace on the net.
Near Wassertrüdingen, on the Hesselberg, the Germans had operated a radio beacon and the US forces later ran a DF and/or relay site there. The site itself was closed and razed from 1992. Today there is an important relay for TV, radio and everything else.
We are trying to find out, what British unit was there at the time. Maybe it was in the context of DF.
Would anybody be able and willing to help?
Many thanks in advance
