Cambrai Fritsch Kaserne – Darmstadt, Germany

Cambrai Fritsch Kaserne was, I believe, an Army base where 6911th RGM was a tenant organization. Again, I’m not sure what my Dad did here but thanks to Red Barthel, I’m a little more familiar. He provided a nice PDF file on Darmstadt and what USAFSS was all about in Darmstadt. You can read the PDF at the link below:

Darmstadt Story

Thanks, Red!

  1. I was ditty bop . . . stationed at Darmstadt from 1963-1965. Was on Dog Flight. Remember all the trips back and forth out to the compound. Can’t remember a lot of the friends I knew, but remember Charles “Chip” Seldon, Steve Hampton, and Elvor Hopper. Also remember other guys, but can’t remember their first names . . . like Tooles, Woods and others. Guess it’s been so long now. If anyone remembers me or some of the names I mentioned here, please e-mail me.

  7. Huston, would like to invite you to join 2 large USAFSS sites on SPOKT.COM. There is the 6910th Darmstadt to Augsburg and the USAFSS ROLLCALL Sites (all worldwide AFSS units). Both have large memberships and you would probably meet up with someone you served with. They are both free sites but require a password to sign in. If you are interested and would like a password let me know and I will get them to send you one. Give it a thought and let me know. Have a great day.
    (2nd RSM 49-52 Ernest Ludwig (ELK) and 6911th 55-57, Cambrai Fritsch (CFK)

    Was on Baker second floor right across from the chow hall. Friends with Cletus Derks (deceased) but believe he played volleyball.
