RAC Training Camp, Bredebeck Castle, Bergen-Belsen

Sorry chaps, only found this site today. It took a while to reach me in the boonies of Oregon, USA.

I was attached to Maj. Goldsmith's unit from 1945 to late 1947 as interpreter and visited Bergen-Belsen in 2005 with my wife on a sentimental journey.

I found a few changes, e.g. the swimming pool was filled in and instead of one flag pole there are now three. We used the one on Boxing Day to hoist the pants of one of the officers. I was billeted on the upper floor of the officers mess, with a window onto the reflection pool.

Anybody out there who knew Sgt. Simpson, Capt. Stott, Hutchinson?
