Guestbook for The Berliner - the British Military train
Bruce Neeves
I served in 62 (Berlin) Tpt and Mov Sqn RCT, 1972-75. I commanded B troop (staff cars and military taxis) but took my turn every few months as OC Train. The best journey was the 1000th anniversary journey with all the top brass in Berlin (General David Scott-Barrett and Brigadier Peter Downward) and my boss Major Terry O'Neil. Wives came too. The most nightmare journey was when the military boarding schools in West Germany broke up for Christmas and hundreds of unaccompanied teenagers travelled back home to West Berlin on the train. I had to ask the RMP to meet the train at Charlottenburg station! The Berliner has always stayed with me and memories of my three years in West Berlin. One of my civilian drivers in B Troop had served in the Waffen SS during the war and was selected by the General to be his civilian driver - Herr Bischoff - sadly he was just not popular with the other drivers!

I conveyed secret documents on the Sunday Berliner having been sent on a mission by "M" into East Berlin in 1972. I was to get the low down on a KGB Honey Trap Agent, one Hildegard Titzenboom code name 'Annabel' . having successfully secured photographic evidence I got involved in a SMERSH party,. It was only when the vodka ran out in 2012 that I felt it was time to return to London & report.
