This group photo I got from James McGrane! He is the man in the back row the 5th from right. This photo was taken by a member of 28 at Bindon Barracks in 1971! Very historic photo! Thanks for support!

    I believe the soldier centre row second from left is my late father, Dennis Cutting (possibly known as “Ginge”).

    Col Goodson’s wife was the girl guide captain.

    My Dad was stationed in Hameln before the Falklands, my brother was born in Hameln in 1978.
    After the Falklands my dad was stationed again back in Hameln from 83-86 I think. He was 65 corp spt squadron. 28 engineer regt. Just trying to find any photos or information or others who were there at that time or who also served in the same squadron at that time. My dads name is Mike Smith (Smudge). Thanks

    Col Goodson was CO of 28 Amph Engr Regt & I was his staff car driver for quite a while.
    His car was a Ford Zephyr & after a while the Austin 1800 took their place (very posh in those days) an absolute pleasure to drive.
    Anyway I was late picking Col Goodson up to take him out to visit the lads in the field on Morning so thought I would go find him.
    As I was late & not quite sure where to find him I had my foot down & ended up in a ditch writing off the 1800.
    As we had not had the 1800 very long the Ford Zephyr was still with the Regt & poor old Col Goodson had to revert back to it for some considerable time.
    I got fined for the accident at the time but now its just one of the many memories I have of my time withe the Royal Engineers in Hameln.
    My wife & I visit Hameln every year & look around the old haunts (missed 2020/21 because of Covid). Hope to start our visits again this year.

    My grandfather was Harold John Goodson, who I believe commanded this Regiment at some point?

    Does anyone have any information on him at all,

    Came across this picture and brought back many memories of my time in Hamelin. I recognise many names and faces, especially Pete Quigley! I will have a look through old albums and see what I can find from this great time. Geoff Moore 28 Amphibious RHQ

  1. I remember this photo. Some of the names I know & all of the faces I remember.
    Starting on the back row LtoR. 2nd John Kendal 4th Myself Pete Quigley 5th Paddy Daley 9th ??? Belamy.
    Middle row LtoR 1st Jock Watson 3rd ??? Lewellin ??? 4th Dave Atkinson.
    Front row LtoR 2nd ??? PT Corps ??? 6th Capt Pratt 10th Sgt McGeeki.
    I was posted to 28 1st June 1970 right at the start of the Regt & had lots of happy days while serving there.
    In later days I joined 64 Sqn & left the regt in 1975 when I was posted to Perham Down Tidworth.
    I left the army in 1976 for personal reasons but still say to this day that was the biggest mistake that I ever made & still look back on my days with the Royal Engineers as the best days of my life & I am now 72 years young.
