Tales of the Unknown, mostly useless.

In 1961, the 1st Battalion the Welch Regiment were posted from Cardiff, where they had spent some months after a tour in Benghazi, to Berlin which involved travelling by ship to the Hook of Holland and then the long train journey through Germany and what was then the 'Russian Sector'. Bearing in mind that there were numerous families and children on this ship, the journey from Cardiff took 36 hours to the Hook of Holland!:rolleyes:
Shortly after they arrived "The Berlin Wall" was erected.
I have to blame my former colleague for giving me the old regimental journals to read for this - but there is some fascinating information contained in them of past events.:biggrin:
