From Lonnie Gervais

Hello Dee,

I was talking to my cousin this weekend (5/27/09), and he showed me a bunch of pictures from when he was in Bad Aibling.

He was in Fort Devons in 1954 and BA in 1955.  He was drafted, even though he had a wife and baby, and did 2 years as a morse code interceptor.

He told me they took their meals in an old hangar that I believe was
our ops building. I asked him if he remembered a gasthaus just off
post and he said sure, it was the “First Chance” if you were leaving
post and the “Last Chance” if you were returning.

Here is a picture of him on post in 1955, (George Nelson). I don’t know what the C/R stands for and didn’t ask him. 

Anyway, you can put this on the Balta site if you want, hopefully I will get the picture attached to this message.  Lonny Gervais
