I happened across this site whilst researching the Detmold Military Railway. The detail contained on the site is stunning and it will be some time before I can fully extract and analyse it. Meantime, please visit the site and enjoy ...  

This website is based on an account written by G.E.Rabone in 1983 and originally published by Stephen Rabone, under the title "On His Majesty's Service". The text recounts the travel experiences of G.E.Rabone, during his time as a member of the Royal Air Force in Western Europe, in the period immediately before and after the end of the Second World War. The text draws heavily upon the notes contained in the detailed travel diary which he kept during these years (part of which is reproduced below). It is hoped that readers will find this account a source of much valuable information about this largely forgotten period of railway history. The text is largely unaltered as written in 1983, and therefore contains certain references that are now out-of-date.
