Posted to OSV in July'ish 1983 as a Corporal left in September 1987 as a Sergeant.

I was an RAOC printer and worked in P&S (Printing and Stationery). We produced all the forms, documents, publications and Regimental stationery required for BAOR.

OSV used to be a Kaisers Kaffee coffee warehouse complex until it was commandeered after the '39-'45 European war games. It acted as the initial clearing house for most stuff coming into Germany before it continued its way to either 3 BOD or its intended destination.

kaisers kaffee wharehouse,became rhine sub depot , 15 abod , i was posted there from 1957 -to 59, the new depot was opened in 1959 just as i went back to blighty for demob , the old factory was a cracking place to be in . our billets and regimental offices were in the main office block , we could boast posh marble staircases up to our billets , and a posh spiral marble staircase up to the cookhouse . the old building was double glazed and central heated which made for very comfortable living accomodation , a pub across the road and lots of pubs down the hill into town , i hear viersen is city status nowdays , it was a small town in the 50s,we even owned the football ground that viersen now plays on , i went there in 57 as a private and left in 59 acting sgt , a real cracking posting , ginger
