Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

  1. I know this is going back a long way, but does anyone know the designation of the BAOR Infantry Battalion which trained with attached US Tanks and French Cav and Arty in spring of 1963 at Sennelager for 6 weeks . It was something called Operation Left Foot and the mission was to test Soviet resolve by driving up the road in a column of twos in the event they closed the Autobahns to Berlin. The technical term for us was "Expendable." I am of the mind the British unit was either from the Gloucestershire (sp?) or the Hampshire Regiments (and probably the latter if I am correct). I commanded the attached US Tank Coy then and am trying to tie up a loose end in my memory.
    Thanks.
