US plane crash



From Jim Walsh    01-01-07
I have been enjoying browsing the Winterberg website especially the items on Iburg which is where I was stationed from 1959 to March 1961.  My name is Jim Walsh and I was storeman for bottom site.  I have a few photos which may be of interest and am attaching one from 1960.   I am on bottom row second from the right.  If this is ok I can forward a few more which may be of interest to others who were at Iburg.   Look forward to hearing from you.
Jim Walsh

I am attaching two more which I hope will not prove to be too much for the e mail.   One is the camp gates and the other the well worn path to the airmens mess along with some local children who were entertained by us one afternoon.  According to my caption on the back of it, the CO F/Lt Lester appears on it and also Pete "Doc" Milledge being shown a cut knee by one of the children. 


 

Three more photos.  Thanks for dealing with them.  Hope this provokes some interest from other Iburg veterans who were there at that time, they may recognise themselves as I cannot remember all of them.    Photo at top is us having a beer at the bar which looks like its dining in night with the white shirts. next  is taken down by the lake and the other one is us having a beer in Heinrichs. 
 






GOT ANY PHOTOS YOU WOULD LIKE TO SEE HERE ? E;MAIL DETAILS AND WE WILL TELL YOU HOW TO SEND THEM TO US.

Keith

Thanks to the wonders of the Internet and your Website on Winterberg I have received an E mail from Reg Hall who was stationed at Iburg between 1951-54. He was an SAC cook and although not on the technical side remembers that in those days Iburg was a slave station and known as 124 S U. I had a lengthy conversation about our time in Germany and he came up with the following names he remembered 

Ft Lt Stanley    Sgt Henderson (Tech)    Sgt Jenkins (M T) 'Taffy' (General Duties)    'Lofty' Goodall (Driver) married a German girl,   Charlie Green (Driver)    Don Cannon (LAC cook)
'Jock' Nicholson (Driver) fron Ayr
