Hi Ci,
If I remember you were at Celle Trenchard Bks I was posted from Berlin in 59/60 after going over the East Germen border one night ended up in Potsdam jail for a couple of weeks caused a bit of a stir and with my name burgess it didn't help at the time.
Joined 1st troop with Butch Marland, Klia Bates, Jim Dick, all nat servicemen, + Geordy Stark Sgt Jackson. Some of the other characters were Ian Rumble Scouse Bennett both REME Johnny Cove Singe Powell, Gordon Mitchel and others. Which trp were you in and do you remember me.
Health and Happiness to you. Mick

Hi mick,I remember a Singe Powell in Celle BAOR,he was in my squadron {C} around 1958 ,I believe he spoke German quite well.I do remember Gordon Mitchell ,we shared the same room in Celle he was a full corporal I was a L/Cpl,when he was promoted to Sgt I was promoted to full corporal and posted to North Wales as an instructor{drill,gunnery}.I lost contact with him when I returned to the Regiment 2 years later.At that time our troop commander was a Lt Pharo-Thomlin who later became Adjutant.Getting back to Cy as we all knew him,he came from Cirencester,and part of 3rd Troop as was I.He was a trooper at this time a wireless operator,I believe later he made Sgt after I left the Army.I,m sure I had photo,s of him on a training exercise on Soltau tank area,but I,m afraid as with most of my reg,t photos lost over the years.
good to hear from you Bill Phillips.
