      Upgrade July 26,2017   07/27/17

      We had an upgrade to the system this morning and I had to temporarily disable the theme/colors/look-feel of the forum. The forum was acting strangely and was moving along at a snails pace, so had to perform some tests. After I disabled all the customizations, things improved immensely, so... I am hoping to add our colors back, but till then...bear with me. Thanks!

      Advertisers   08/12/17

      If you would like to advertise on my VI Corps site, please let me know. However, all ads must be directly related to WWII. Are you an author? Are you conducting tours? Are you a researcher? Prices are very reasonable, for aren't we here to benefit each other? Looking forward to hearing from you. 

      Viewers, please note, there WILL NOT be giant pop-up ads on my site. Nothing infuriates me more than going to someone's site and having to scroll past obnoxious, in your face ads or ones that are stuck in the middle of articles, forcing you to scroll further down the page to see the rest of the paragraphs. They will be tasteful, appropriately places small banners.

Gallery Engineer bridges Germany today

Recommended Posts

or last year :armata_PDT_01:

I hope this the proper Forum for this photo?.

I just visited the gallery again, section Engineer bridges-Germany, and thought I know the place of the first photos. Here a photo of last summer with our rescue exercise on the Rhine, between Bad Honnef and Rolandseck. The place of the bridge was later prepared for military crossings of the river, so-called "NATO ramps".

Edit: Pictures 31 and 32 are showing the same Bridge from the west bank of the Rhine. Here they use the ferry ramp, not the later NATO ramp 50m to the left.

Of course I can!

I wrote some lines last year http://www.6thcorpsc...pic=6600&st=150

For several reasons it's getting more and more difficult to find enough lifesavers in each of the three mentioned organisations, so we tried for the first time mixed crews on different boats - rubber dinghies, IRBs, flood boats, emergency boats and a working boat and also for mixed teams of divers. It was the hottest day of last summer, but on the Rhine it was fine :P

But most of the time we are giving swimming lessons or guarding pools, all honorary as a Hobby, and also if it's raining.
