Hi all,
I was the Berlin Inf Bde Master Driver located with 62 Sqn RCT (1988-91). The time in Berlin was the highlight of a 22 years service. Thanks to all who remember me in the Sqn and thanks Berlin. Do miss shopping in the East; mind you the beer was crap!

Remember lets be careful out there!

My family moved to Berlin in 1963, were my father worked for BSSO near the Olympic Stadium. I remember tobogganing down the hill near Kranz Alle, near Olympic Stadium one snowy Christmas eve with a bunch of kids. I worked for a short time as a secretary at the Barracks next door to Spandau Prison. Joined the American drama club and played a small part in a play at the Volks Fest one time. What a great time to have been in Berlin during the 60’s, and to have been part of history…..

I served with 62 Squadron from Nov 85 - Mar 87, can't for the life of me remember the name of the barracks, but don't half miss the Schnell Imbiss that was right outside the camp gates, lol.Spent a lot of time in the stores with a mate called Paul, he was an english civilian, working at the camp, and was married to a Berliner, loved to meet him again, we had a great laugh. big grin big grin

I loved Berlin so much , I went back to live there when I got Divorced. I worked at RAF GATOW and in the Cinema. Above the Cinema was a private Club for NAAFI/ Cinema employees, it sold the cheapest Beer in the DIVIDED CITY. I had a few beers there many times then staggered down to the IRISH PUB!
I Loved the TRAIN and got more BTDs than Terry Mundin or Bernie Bush Ha! Ha!
I've still got some BAFFs, so I'm going back to spend em!

After the allies left in 1994 the Edinburgh House at Theodor Heuss Platz was turned into a student hostel for students from foreign countries. This was initiated by Helmut Kohl und François Mitterand.

I was stationed at 229 Signal Squadron Between 1962 and 1964 we were in the old athletes quarters in the British HQ.

Does anyone remember operation ROCKING HORSE it was the emergency exercise where everyone had to be in there designated locations within fifteen minutes. I remember speeding off down Heer Strasse through heavy traffic in our Unimog radio truck.

The night life was teriffic it never closed. I loved the train operator duty between Berlin and Helmstead.
