Interesting history. I was one of your Yank counterparts assigned to Augsburg, Germany, from 1973-1975. We had an exchange visitation program with your personnel circa 1974-1975. I still have some photos of some of your people and ours sharing a few (quite a few) beers at the Hofbrau Haus in Munich during that time frame. Cheers.

I am looking through old photographs which prompted me to look up 13 Sig Regt Birgelen (I knew someone who served there in 1976/77/78) Sgt Dave Lang (also served on R Signals "Quicksilver" Team with him) If you read this Dave or anyone who knows you - I hope you are well and happy:-), Liz

Was at Birgelen in 1959, as a relief operator for the AKC. We came under the War Office at the time, with WO`s and Sgts status. For both accommodation, rations and transport. Not sure of the manager at the time, but I had met David Hood when he was a relief manager, possibly else where? Enjoyed my stay at Birgelen, as they were a friendly lot in the WO`s and Sgts Mess, especially after having been with an infantry unit in Essen Kray. I used to go for walks in the woods, opposite the main gate. I was later that year, posted to the Canadians, for a total of five and a half years. In hindsight, the 12 years spent in BAOR, were the best years of my life! I was only 6 years with the AKC in total, the rest as a dependant.

My father, Brian Wheeler, served part of his National Service in Degendorf from 1955-1957 as a wireless/signals operator (for example, I recall him saying he listened to many signals during the uprising in Hungary in 1956) . He passed away in 2012 and I am interested to find out what I can about his time in Germany about which he had many fond memories. I have some photographs of him and his friends during that time which I can copy if anyone remembers him.
