1996/12/01 – 1996/12/04 – EXERCISE „NEPTUNES FROST“ – Official handover of the M3 to the 28 Engineer Regiment

Vom 01.-04. December 1996 fand in Hameln und Umgebung das Manöver „NEPTUNES FROST“ statt. Ein Manöver was einen Wendepunkt für das Regiment darstellte, denn es wurde offiziell mit neuen amphibischen Fahrzeugen ausgerüstet.  Ein Sauwetter, so sagte mir Eckhard Uhde war es damals, als er mir seine Bilder überreichte. Er war damals dabei um diesen Moment festzuhalten. Dafür danke ich ihm ganz herzlich. Alan Tyson-Carter war damals Verbindungsoffizier hier in Hameln. Mit diesem Bericht habe ich absichtlich bis heut gewartet, denn jetzt wo er veröffentlicht wird, sind die M3 Schnellschwimmbrücken genau 20 Jahre im Dienst bei der britischen Armee. Sie werden weiterhin in Minden vom 23 Amphibious Troop RE verwendet. 16CP01-16CP38 das sind die Kennzeichen der M3 und im Lauf der Woche wird ein weiteres Special erscheinen.

From 01.-04. In 1996 Exercise „NEPTUNES FROST“ took place in Hameln and the surrounding area. This Exercise was a turning point for the regiment, as it was officially equipped with new amphibious vehicles. A typical british weather it was, so my friend Eckhard Uhde told me, when he gave me his pictures about this historic event.  I would like to thank him very much. Alan Tyson-Carter was at that time the liaison officer here in Hameln. With this report, I have been waiting deliberately until today, because now that it is published, the M3 Rigs are exactly 20 years in the service of the British Army. They are still used in Minden by 23 Amphibious Troop RE. 16CP01-16CP38 these are the registrations of the M3 and another special report will appear during the week.
