1st Bn Duke of Edinburghs Royal Regiment
Training at Soltau
During its time at Minden the Battalion became very familiar with the Training ground at Soltau, it fact during the exercises there, they must have dug half the place up. We had many happy weeks/Months traversing the training ground either with or against our good friends the Royal Scots Greys, and later the 16th/5th Lancers. This is where the 'Mechanized Infantry' skills were firstly learned ,then honed making our Battalion one of the best.
