© Arnd Wöbbeking How difficult it is to get data about a military government that arose shortly after one of the worst wars of mankind, I need not mention separately.

Liebe Herr Woebbeking
I am a member of a small group of amateur military history enthusiasts researching and recording the history of the British Army in Germany in the early post war years from May 1945 onwards. One of the team, a former British serviceman, now lives in the Minden area, and found your website
I have been involved with the project for almost ten years now
If you are interested I would be very happy to share information.
a. More details on the Sapper Parachute Field Squadron which first arrived in Hameln in Summer 1948 and left for England in September 1949.
b. Details of the Canadian 58 Field Squadron (my source is an individual who was posted to one of the Canadian Infantry Battalions in Hannover).
I also have brief details of
a The British Military Troop Train system which operated throughout BAOR from 1946 till the late 1950’s.I suspect that few of your contributors are aware that Hameln was served several times a week by The Green Train travelling to and from the Hook of Holland and starting/terminating in Hannover.
b. The original BAOR military Postal System introduced in early 1947. Hameln may have been served from Hannover in the early years as BAOR 5 but in later years definitely was a stand alone BAOR 26. The BAOR system ended in the mid 1950s with the introduction of the worldwide BFPO System familiar to your contributors..
