1961/05/16 – Albuera Day – Middlessex Regiment “DIE HARDS”

© Mark Oz / Arnd Wöbbeking

Am 16. Mai 1811 fand bei dem kleinen Ort Albuera eine der blutigsten Schlachten der Napoleonischen Kriege statt! Dieser Tag wird bei den Einheiten die daran teilgenommen haben, immer noch geehrt. So auch im Mai 1961 in den Gordon Barracks Hameln!

Hier dazu der Wikipedia Artikel <klick>

Die Fotos dazu hat mir Mark gesendet, bei dem ich mich dafür recht herzlich bedanke!

The photos were sent in by Mark! Thanks for support!

    Hi Arnd, I’ve been trying to contact you, as I’ve some photos of our time in Gordon Barracks (Middlesex Regimental Band) and I would like to know where to send them (email address). You have contacted me asking to use some of my photos on ‘Flickr’ which I’m happy for you to do. I’ve found about 15 photos, some of which may not be of any use to you, but you can decide on that. Anyway contact me with an address and I’ll forward them to you.
