(Memories written by members of Forces Reunited)
16 signal regiment in 1960The regt was stationed at Bradbury Barracks Krefeld,Germany.I believe the regt arrived in Krefeld in the late 50s early 60s and stayed there until moving to Elimpt station a few years ago.I think Elimpt used to be RAF Bruggen but I could be mistaken.16 sigs was designated 2,LFC which meant that any signal traffic from War Office to BAOR came through our signal center first.Being a regular,one of my favourite memories is the night one of the comcen ops came roaring into the NAFFI to tell us National servicemen had another six months,Ahh bless them.
16 Signal Regiment in 1960
Written by Barry LeeMy memory is a little vague these days, so please bear with me. I was also serving when the extra 6 months was added because of the Cuba crisid, I had then moved from St Tonis barracks sometime in 1961 to a live station on the Dutch border near wassenburg, It was literally a short walk from the camp gates to the border which we used to cross in our free time ,to go to a little pub on a corner which I have forgotten the name of.
