Contributed by Bob Smith:
Bob was with the 601st at Rothwesten from 1948 until 1952
He was with the wire team. Here he is heating wax while working on a cable.
Wire team at work??
Wire team work took them to the remote sites.
Here Bob is at Winterberg.
Bob: "Since I speak a few lingos I went along with priest Father Hughes (left) to some displaced persons camps."
Building # 5
Bob's home at Rothwesten
A familiar place to a lot of us.
It was just up the hill from the mess hall.
Neil O'Riley and Bob Smith
They were boyhood friends.
Both were from Watertown, N.Y.
Neil died 2 years ago.
Since Bob was there before many of us, I think it would be interesting to see all of his pictures, etc.. I still have more to scan and he has promised to send more.
