I'm coming up to 74 years of age but in 1952 I signed for 3 years and after training was posted to 27 Field Engr Regiment at Minden Germany. In those days promotion was readily available and I finished up as a Corporal. At the beginning of September my wife and I are going to make our own way by Ferry and Train to Minden for me to have a look around after some 53 years. The whole trip from leaving home to returning will only be for a total of 7 days, 4 days of this taken up with the travelling. Can anyone tell me if there is any RE unit in Minden or close by.If there is would we be allowed to visit past the guardroom or is security so tight these days that that sort of thing is verboten! I know the camp where I was based is now a trading estate or something so thats out. It is hopefully my intention to take my wife to Belsen for her to see. (I visited in 1953) and that will take up one of our 3 days. Its just a nostalgic trip really that I want to do after all these years. Anything anyone can tell me or any advice would be greatly appreciated.
