9 INDEPENDENT PARACHUTE SQUADRON RE

1948 – 1951

—————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————

Auf der Squadron Hauptseite habe ich einen Hinweis von Paddy bekommen, das in Hameln auch diese Squadron stationiert gewesen sein soll.

Ich konnte es nicht glauben, aber ich habe diese Information von

Wendy George I Assistant Editor  I Airborne Assault  I  IWM Duxford   I  www.paradata.org.uk  I

bestätigt bekommen!

Vielen Dank dafür.

Die Squadron war die Pionier-Einheit der 16 Independent Parachute Brigade Group, die seinerzeit in den London Barracks Hannover stationiert gewesen sind!

Die 9 Independent Parachute Squadron RE war in den Binden Barracks (Scharnhorst Kaserne) einquartiert!

 
Wenn jemand aus Hameln weitere Information darüber hat, würde ich mich sehr freuen!

    I am one of a small team of amateur military history enthusiasts researching and recording the early days of the British Army in Germany

    I have carried out a detailed study into the deployment of 2/16 Parachute Brigade who were in Germany from Spring 1947 till Autumn 1949.

    I can confirm that 9 Squadron were indeed in Hameln. According to my sources they arrived in mid Summer 1948 from Palestine and left for Aldershot in Autumn 1949 with the rest of the Brigade.

    One additional item which ParaData appear unaware. According to the Quarterly Historical Record for Hamburg District for the Second Quarter of 1948 3 Parachute Field Squadron RE moved to Hameln from Neumunster to form a small cadre of Paratroop trained Sappers prior to the arrival of 9 Squadron. (you can find more detail in the book „History of the Airborne Sappers 1948-1984)

    Hope this is of interest.
