Both my parents served in the CCG after distinguished army service for the whole War. They met and married in Hamburg. Does anybody know of any source of information on those who worked in the CCG?

Welcome

Finding accurate authoritive information on the exact role, deployment and members of the CCG is proving extremely difficult

I do have a duplicate copy of the 1949 Senior Staff List which does give an outline organisation and names of key post appointments. Your parents might be listed

If you PM me separately with details of your parents names I will get back to you privately.

Control Commission Germany 1946.
Hi, My mother and father were both involved with the CCG in Herford, Germany in 1946 and knew it well. My father was stationed in the Control Commission Germany, Car unit which was in the Barracks on Vlothoer ( now near a Tennis platz) along with my Grandfather. Also in this Barrack block, with the VW's etc there were the horses and these were available for families of CCG members to ride. Families, which included my mother, were put up for stays in what we think is the Konigens-Mathilda Gymnasium on the same road, which was then a military Hospital, school and taken over by the CCG along with many other buildings on Pen Hill. They used to visit a small tea rooms again a little bit down the same road call 'The Cottage'. Still further down the road is The Schutzenhof where many events were held for CCG members. When my mother arrived in 1946, the station was hanging off it's hinges, blown apart with all lines dangling and blowing in the wind. Many local German people including children with bare feet and virtually nothing on, were begging for food at the side of the railway lines. Hard to imagine today. War is not a nice thing, for either side!

Hope this helps. I'd like to hear from anyone with further information about the above.
Andrew.

Read the article with interest (valoppypuss contribuition) suspect the Schurzenhof is the now redundant Schwarzenmoor Ranges.

Found some links to CCG (BE) in the Public Record Office at Kew where data is stored under Foreign Office tags (FO 1065 Title:
