Lifted from BFBS 7 Nov 22
British Army Germany  · “Building Bridges - Strengthening interoperability”British and German soldiers from Minden-based German-British Amphibious Engineer Battalion 130 took part in a capability demonstration in Ingolstadt for NATO allies and European partners. The Battalion, including British soldiers from 23 Amphibious Engineer Squadron RE, deployed their M3 amphibious rigs and other engineer equipment by rail, the first time for many personnel who quickly learned the skills under the watchful eye of trained movement specialists. Captain Henry Brown, Operations Officer for the Battalion emphasised the multi-national role of the demonstration. “It was a great opportunity for us to deploy our equipment by rail, the first time we have done this in a while, so re-learning that capability was good. The Battalion has deployed with two amphibious Squadrons and provides an opportunity, not just to showcase our capability but to train alongside our allies and partners.”The Battalion was officially formed on 1 Oct 2021 but joint training happened before then. “23 Amph Engr Sqn is now integrated into the Battalion and we think we have introduced our British flavour into our operations. Language differences can still be a challenge here and there but on the water we act as one entity with adoptive hand signal and other procedures.”Both nations operate the M3 rig which is used individually as a ferry or joined together to create a bridge for military vehicles to cross, including Main Battle Tanks and other heavy equipment. The UK and Germany are the only nations within NATO to have the bridging capability.
