In January 1964 the 192nd Panzergrenadier Battalion of the German Bundeswehr was going to Bavaria on a winter training exercise and had asked the Commanding Officer of 2nd Black Watch for some winter warfare specialists to go with them. He sent an officer and three Senior NCOs, of which I was one, in response to this request. The photo shows Sergeant Robertson supervising a German soldier firing the MG3 on the ‘Rommel’ ranges at the Wildflecken Camp.
