Ski Hut

24 Msl Regt had a ski hut in southern Germany, I went there in the mid 1960's, Berchtesgarden somewhere, can anyone remember the exact location? or the name of the hut.

Re: Ski Hut

I went ski-ing to a place called Uberamagau in 67/68.That was a lodge, then in 68/69 we went to Garmish/partenkirshen which was an American army base.I was in X survey troop then changed to staff troop to work in the serviceing bay.Paderborn 1967 to 71.

No, that's not the one I visited, have since found out that it was in/around Berchtesgaden, if I remember it was the old fire station for Hitlers Eagles Nest at Obersalzberg.
I spent some time with survey troop on a mapping exercise in Norway, I was one of the support vehicle mechanics, had a great time.

Re: Ski Hut

Jock, I can't remember you but I was in 51 Bty when you were there. The name of the place is called the Berghoff a couple of "K's" past the Eagles Nest and the then General Walker Hotel, The same hut was used by 50 regt when 24 disbanded I ran the hut (yes a old SS fire station) in winter 1981 as a WO2 many good memories.

Doug, thanks for the info,I've found it on google maps and plan to visit some time this spring, Hotel Hainberg was the local 'gasthaus' so that'll be my billet for a few nights, I'm looking forward to re-living a few good old memories, thanks again.

Re: Ski Hut

Jock, When you get there to the Gaste hause (I knew it only as Frau Shroders) ask around for Willy Fitsimmons he was in 24 in 76.51btys he used to live opposite the pub send him my regards if you would Cheers

Hi Trevor, yes we did, it was a burnt out exhaust valve and we had to remove the cylinder head to replace it, the L/rover started misfiring halfway up Denmark and one of the other rovers towed it so that we could all catch the ferry to Norway. Oh happy days. lol
