I notice under units and barracks there is no mention of an RASC mobile bakery situated in West Riding Barracks. I distinctly recall being there on several occasions in 1958.

I was quite intrigued by the set-up. Everything, ovens, mixing vats, the lot, was mounted on trailers or trucks which were parked more or less permanently in a large hanger. The bakers were all German civilians, a rather surly lot as I recall, but they kept that bread flowing every day. Pretty good bread, too!

Anyway, I thought this would be worth a mention. Does anyone else know about the unit?

Came across this post whilst looking for something else. It was posted while I was off the Forum.

Does anyone know any more about this unit?

When I was doing my National Service in the RASC 1950-52 there was a trade as a baker.in fact one of the guys on my draft was one and we both finished up at 80 Supply Depot Hannover.I was a butcher and worked at the Cold Storage Depot issuing meat products.The bakery was part of the main depot, but housed in sheds,I vaguely remember looking in the doors and seeing equipment on wheels,there was a Sgt and Cpl plus Jock Stalker the private in the baker trade but I suspect the main force were Germans. The NCO ic of the Cold Store was a sgt butcher who arrived in Hannover at the end of the war with a Field Butchery Section so the RASC was set up to do it locally if necessary,hence a Field Bakery Section. Our main labour force was German,only three military personell,the sgt supervised and me and a Lcpl took half hour about in the cold rooms keeping an eye on the labour, and ther were some real characters among,I can still sing some of the dirty songs that they taught me

I wasn't serving in those days, but I do remember RAOC bread in the late 70's and eary 80's. That was made in Bielefeld I think. We used to get it on exercise and in the cookhouse. The loaves came wrapped in a white coloured greaseproof type paper with the 'day' marked on it. I assume that the 'day' meant that was the day it was either made or the day it had to be consumed by, but either way it was always stale and tasted of nothing, but there was always an abundance of it, so much so that the Guardroom rations usually comprised of 3-4 loaves of the stuff. As for the 'day' markings, i.e. Monday, it really should have been marked 'Two weeks past Monday' as it was probably fresh back then.

After I left the service and went to work for Barrack Services I worked with an ex WO2 who was a baker with 47 Supply Unit(I think that was the name,but 47 IS the number)This must have been in the 60/70s!Ring a bell with anyone?
