I was stationed at Braconne from 1960- 63. I have some photos from this time ( I was in Det. A). I also revisited this area last October and made some pictures. The camp is now in ruins but I think I recognize the barracks where we used to live. I also visite Angoulême, La Rochefoucauld and Montbron (where my wife and I lived for two years.).
Would like to hear from you.
My name is John Taft and I was stationed at Braconne from 1955 to 1956 and would love to see your pictures of the base. I was planning to visit there in the near future but you say the base in in ruins and makes me sad. Wanted to visit my old barrecks and post signal where I worked. Would love to here from you..
Thanks....John Taft [email protected]
