Hya Mike
I hope this the same Mike I'm thinking of.
I was in x survey troop from 1966 until April 1969.
My name is Bill Rawnsley.
At the time our BSM was Ed Rayner and our TC was Capt. Short

Putting 24 Missile Regiment RA Paderborn back in view for the not many left who served Honest John or 8 in towed Howitzer, back in the day.
39 Msl Regt Sennelager and 50 Msl Regt Menden  complete the set each consisting 4 Firing Batteries and HQ Bty with echelons.

Missile Regiments had a large manpower establishment,  an extensive G1098 and respectable vehicle park, the composition included:
a roaming Survey Troop (S tradesmen) covering most of Germany with pegs, and noting where they were
(and each HJ/Gun Bty had Regtl Svyrs (A Tradesmen) with Correction  of the Moment (CofM) trailers with weather balloons and anemometer) and Bty Svyrs (B Tradesmen) - theodolites/directors are us)
a Rear Link Detachment R Signals for long range communications (can remember them setting a long aerial above the roof ridge of HQ Bty  Block (Blk 15)  Barker Barracks to communicate with elements (at different times) in Norway and Denmark and Camp du Larzac in France, and Bad Kissingen or Grafenwohr and the Ski Team - anywhere from Silberhutte to Kärnten).
a Workshop REME - back then we had Mack Trucks and towed howiters, a variety of International Harvester long bodies/launchers and wreckers (cranes) and Pole Trailers, Land Rovers, Bedfords, Champs, Commer and Fordson Box bodies and motorcycles
a Stores Section RAOC - with such a varied Equipment Table and Vehicle Park, needed an extensive range of UK/US  spares.

Petrol was the only fuel back then - no tankers, just a Bedford per Bty loaded to the gills with filled jerricans, for major exercises  filled jerricans were stockpiled beside roads - it was easy to drop off empties and replen with filled cans - but hardwork swinging 50 lbs of jerrican on to the Bedford at night. All replen was by night, in the dark.
