Cuxhaven Various
 
Information has been received from the Archivist of The Black Watch about locations in Germany at the immediate end of World War 2, and the years following on from there.
 
Whilst these first locations are closer to Bremerhaven, they are in the Cuxhaven District as the small Bremen/Bremerhaven enclave in the otherwise British Zone was designed to give the Americans a transatlantic port facility to the land locked US Zone in the South of Germany.

According to the details supplied by the Archivist, it appears as though they spent about 5 months in Mulsum before moving on to Buxtehude.
