    Thanks for sharing , all very familiar places to me, we had married quarters at both Goch and Pfalzdorf up until the time RAF Laarbruch closed. Goch , Kleve, Geldern Venlo Kevalear al places we visited regularly for shopping dining etc; I wish I had had access to all the great info on this forum during my time there; Mind I did manage to take my Dad to Xanten he was 279 Fld Co RE 15 Div.

    Thank you...my pleasure...I'm learning a lot from this site, little bit here and there, but these mechanical equipment platoons are a nightmare to research, so if anyone knows anything on 50 me pln during operation plunder please let me know..I can upload 866 april and may if theres an interest...

    Some good footage of RE's I had'nt seen before on this Dutch (I think) series of films for this time period...https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=S4N48Vyj_0A

    Yes excellent footage have added the link to my favourites, and it throws up links to many more films. Yes I would like to read April & May's . I must get round to getting my Dad's ordered.
