Brunsbüttel
 
Home to 5 RTR sometime between the dates of 1945 and 1953.
 
Brunsbüttel, with a population of about 14,000, is situated on the north bank of the mouth of the River Elbe in Schleswig-Holstein. The southern entrance to the Kiel Canal is also here. Little else is known of the area at present, especially the presence of 5 RTR, enquiries to the Association were, unfortunately, not fruitful. Using Google Map and Google Earth, it has not been possible to positively identify an area where there may have been a Barracks complex.
