British Forces in Germany

The British Forces in Germany (BFG) Legacy Project is beginning and you can be a part of it by sharing your experiences for a new book.

By the time the last units in 20 Armoured Brigade leave Sennelager in 2019, British Forces will have been stationed in Germany for nearly 75 years. To mark this lengthy period of overseas deployment, HQ BFG is producing a high quality glossy coffee table book: ‘British Forces in Germany ‘ The Lived Experience.’

Hundreds of thousands of British Servicemen and women have spent at least some of their active service in Germany, be that as a part of BAOR, UKSC(G) or BFG. In addition are the tens of thousands of civil servants and support staff that have underpinned the community.

We are now looking for civilian stories of British / German relationships formed during this period and where possible photographs or images of items connected to these happenings.

It may have to do with a local German / British Society, or Sporting Club, it may be to do with exercises (Manöver) on the Hannovarian Plain, or it may just be a pleasant social meeting; after all a great number of marriages occurred between British Troops and the local population.

Please send you stories in the first instance to the Legacy Project Officer at the following email address: bfg-hq-legacyproject-ogpmailbox@mod.uk or by post to Legacy and Projects Officer, HQ BFG, Catterick Kaserne, Detmolder Str 440, 33605 Bielefeld.

The Royal Logistic Corps

Sports awards winners 2022 : Team of the year Royal Logistic Corps Cycling Association (RLCCA) Ladies team (Road and Mountain bike) are leading the way in Army Cycling.The success of the RLCCA Ladies team has grown from strength to strength over the last six years. Road Team Captain and Manager Maj Michelle Debono-Evans and 2IC Capt Sue Chittock combined with Major Tracey Mackenzie-Rayner for Mountain biking changed this by leading from the front on the bike and also igniting a successful recruitment drive for new ladies. The RLC ladies now field 4 of the 10 members of the Army Ladies Road Race Team and one of the 5 members of the Army XC MTB Team. Their list of achievements includes winning the Williams Cup in successive years (2018 and 2019), the only team to have their name on the trophy to date (taking into consideration the cancelled events in 2020 and 2021 due to COVID), they took second place in the Inter Corps Championships and numerous podium places across Senior, Masters, Grand Masters and the Team Categories every year. E-cycling popularity during the COVID restrictions, provided further opportunity to demonstrate their ability, with the RLC Ladies’ team leading the way in the Army Cycling Union e-racing series on Zwift. They have recorded consistent podium places and have been commended as the only Corps to field a full ladies’ team across the race series. The RLC fielded approximately a third of the ladies competing across the 2021/22 race series. ... See MoreSee Less
