  1. Guys,

    I need some some help if someone can.
    What I want to know is how many regts were in the major garrison areas/towns in the 80's eg - osnabruck 2x inf regt 1xRCT 1x REME etc.

    It must be on the internet somewhere but being a biff :D I can't find it.

    Individual regts eg RGJ were in osnatraz 88 etc is not nececsary but would be an added bonus.

    Thx if anyone can help.
  2. In Herford in the early 80's there were 1 RTR, 7 Sigs, 4 ADSR and a few minor units, not sure who the local Inf were and where they were located.
