    Hi Rich and herzlich willkomen!
    Not sure I fully understand where you mean. Could you put a point on a map or a Google Earth screenshot of the area?

    I was stationed in Fallingbostel for nearly 3 years so know your part of the world quite well, and remain very fond of it. Many retired British soldiers miss serving in Germany and look back on their time there with good memories.

    It is a big area, that is why I will ask Alfred to show me exactly where. The ground and it's use has changed a lot since the war, back then it was all Moore but it was dried out in the 50s and is now farm land. Obviously the now dried out land is more accessible and has been developed. When I have that area I will post it up on an OS map. At the moment with all this corona we are on reduced hours so I am not out as much as usual.
    Best
    Rich

    Albert, not Alfred!

    No hurry Rich. After all it's nearly 76 years since the guns were in position! Keep well, and AstraZeneca is good stuff! ;)

    ‘Incidentally’, just seen the IWM caption to the photo and the engineers are working on the bridge at Mandelsloh not Essel. Doh! Apologies Olli! :rolleyes:

    Phew - I was already afraid that the history of the world war would have to be completely rewritten.
