Am trying to find out the location of the Civil Internment Camp No 2 in the British Sector in Germany. My grandad was posted there at the end of 1945, and so far I've drawn a blank in finding where it was. Many thanks for any clues.

Carol

You could try the National Archives at Kew

Would offer to help but a recent visit shows there are over 12 thousand separate files dealing with the early days of British Forces in Germany

Hi guys

Success! The CIC 2 War Diary for 1945 at Kew National Archives indicates that CIC 2 was Sandbostel, northern Germany.

Glad you were successful in your quest, interestingly there is a vague link with another ongoing quest elsewhere on this site

Here is an interesting site.

http://www.dpcamps.org/slaveCampsR-S.html

Scroll down to SANDBOSTEL

Althought the term Civil Internment Camp'is used within the context of this thread. I would also use the term 'DP Camp' (Displaced Persons) as well when doing searches. It seems to be the more commonly used name.

British – Civil Internment Centre(s) under British Military Admin: Estab was 5 Offrs and 82 - 92 OR. There would be increments (Guards, Outer security, Med Staffs, Dvrs etc) from nearby or garrison units. Staumühle Lager had a Searchlight Battery and the Resident Inf Unit from Schl. Neuhaus as QRF. There was political uncertainty and friction between the military occupiers and the concept of the Control Commission for Germany becoming the Standing power for the BR sector so it was 15 Apr 46 before the Home Office supplied appropriate Prison Staffs to the UK Foreign Office who ran the Internment Camps through CCG instead of the military.
