"My father was stationed here from 1954 to 1957 with 30 HAA Regt RA, equipped with 3.7" HAA Guns. The last time I was in Delmenhorst (about 1965), the Barracks had been returned to the Germans and was used by the Luftwaffe as a training centre for the Flak and FlaRak units. I seem to remember pieces of hardware, like a Nike-Hercules, Ju87 etc being place on the grass areas near the fence, and as gate guards."
I served in 209 bty 77th HAA Regt. R.A. February 1953 /October 1954 as the driver of Battery Volkswagen.
Have just been reunited with Lt. Bob Lavender. My wife and I visited him on the 27th November where we stayed until Saturday 29th. Sadly, Bob's Wife died last June.
Would like news about, Peter Hartland, Peter Harrison, Mike Steel, Bob Taylor.

I was called up to do my 2 years National Service in Feb 1955. I reported to 68th Training Reg, R.A, Oswestry. After basic training there, I went to 31st Training Reg, Kinmel Camp, Rhyl, N Wales where I learnt to drive. I was then posted to Delmenhorst, W Germany with 77 H.A.A. Reg, R.A. I was with E troop, 41 Battery. It would be great to hear from anyone who served with me in these locations.
