Harry „Yakker“ Yates

(c) Loni Davidson & Arnd Wöbbeking

Today, it is the 21st of June and it is a very special day, so let me explain, please!

A few days ago, I met Loni Davidson at Facebook! She told me that her father was one of the first sappers here in hamelin in the year 1949! He served first at Bindon Barracks and after 2 years he moved to Gordon Barracks! In 1952, he moved to Nienburg! And after his time in Nienburg he was posted in several countrys all over the world!  He joined the Army in June 1940 and left the army January 17 1968 as a Warrant Officer! Sadly he passed away on March 1, 1994.
We are not sure, which unit he served with here in hameln. In Loni’s mind is the 21 Field Engineer Regiment. But she doesn’t remember the Squadron!
Maybe there is someone out, who know more about Harry! His daughter Loni would be very happy about it!

His name was Harry „Yakker“ Yates. Army Number 3391177. Below you will se two photos of Harry!

Maybe both ares sitting, wherever on a bar together and celebrate their birthday’s……. and another common gorund, both passed away in the age of 74! Something special I mean…!

1951 – 48 Field Squadron at Wouldham Camp by Terry Morell 125-COY-RASC

© Terry Morell / 125 COY RASC

Terry Morell war 1951 in Hameln bei der 125 (BRIDGING) COY RASC. Die Hauptaufgaben seiner Kompanie bestanden darin, die Royal Engineers zu unterstützen. Die Jungs vom RASC fuhren mit Ihren LKW’s die Brückenteile der verschiedensten Systeme zu den jeweiligen Einsatzorten. Die hier gezeigten Fotos zeigen eine Bailey Bridge die vom 2. Troop der 48 Field Squadron im Wouldham Camp über die Weser gebaut wurde! Die 48 Field Squadron war nur sehr kurz in Hameln, so daß diese Fotos wohl ziemlich einzigartig sind! Vielen Dank an Terry und seine Tochter, die mir diese Bilder zur Verfügung gestellt haben.

Terry Morell was in 1951 in Hameln witht the 125 (BRIDGING) COY RASC. The main tasks of his company were to support the Royal Engineers. The guys from the RASC drove the bridges of the various systems to their respective locations with their trucks. All photos here show a Bailey Bridge built from the 2nd Troop of the 48 Field Squadron at Wouldham Camp across the Weser! The 48 Field Squadron was very short in Hameln, so these photos are probably quite unique! Thanks to Terry and his daughter who gave me these pictures.

guten Arbeitsbedingungen bei der Britischen Armee.

Es war nicht mehr nur irgendwelche Hilfsarbeiterjobs!
