I was part of the 503rd Engineer Light Equipment Company. We flew into Berlin from Hanau in early 1949. Our task was to build a new runway and expand Tegel airport for the airlift. We departed Berlin after completing the job in late July 1949. I visited Berlin in 1980.
I found your site while seeking information for a history of the 503rd I am writing. Any help with newspaper articals etc, about the airlift or constuction of Tegel in 1948-1949 that you can provide would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks for offering your site.

I served mid-60s as a 98G [Russian] with 78th USASA at Andrews Barracks. Looking for anyone who has a unit insignia to spare [Eagle on Keystone, scroll below].

Best Wishes All!

This should be very interesting, I served with the 14th/20th King's Hussars in Smuts Barracks next door to Spandau Prison where a certain Herr Hess stayed for a while. I have added a link to the site and will inform all those I know that served there of your presence. Good luck and I look forward to hearing from you again soon!

David, it appears that you did leave out 4/18 Inf. Can not forget them - they were formed up (I believe) in 1960? Will check to see if I have a 'picture' of their crest, I believe that they did have the Berlin patch also ??????????

Thx Scott - I will check my sources on that unit, too.
