408 Bridge Troop (RE) – Memories of Roger Makin

© Roger Makin

I was a crane Op but I was also a plant (construction equipment) Mechanic. I did my fist crane operating course at 408 in November 1962 when I was with 65 SQN based in Osnabrück. I came to Hameln in March 63 for the bridge season and was attached to 408 until about June, when a troop from 65 move into the Ravelin camp. It was  while we were there that an accident took place at Wouldham Hard, SPR Ginger Maclean fell off a bulldozer and was run over by it. I was there until the end of August when i went on detachment to Op Crown in Thailand. Returned to Osnabruck in September 64 and moved to Hameln with 65 CFPS that year. Went to ADEN in April 65 for 2 years and was posted to 408 in July 67 and stayed with them until I was promoted to Cpl in November 70 and carried my  bed across the barracks to 28 Amph workshops. I was with them in Bindon until Feb72 . That was my last posting in BAOR. I left the army in Dec 77 when i was made redundant .

Soeben habe ich von Lars einen Ausschitt bekommen, der zwei Gesichter zeigt.

Vielleicht kann sich ja jemand an diese beiden erinnern!

Just now, I’ve got a cutout by Lars showing two faces.
Perhaps someone can remember these two!
