PostSubject: The British Germans   16/11/2011, 10:31

Today, 11:00 on BBC Radio 4
The British armed forces are due over the next decade to complete a final withdrawal from bases in Germany. But they'll leave behind a remarkable human legacy - many thousands of former soldiers who have decided to stay in Germany. In this programme Chris Bowlby goes in search of these 'British Germans', and traces their relationship with Germany and Germans. He meets a soldier who was punished by the British army for marrying a German woman just after the end of the Second World War. He hears about the pubs where Brits and Germans learnt each other's language, the struggle to understand each other's humour, the belief among many ex-soldiers that Germany offers a better society than Britain. And he finds that the children of British-German relationships are becoming increasingly influential in today's German society as he meets a potential future German chancellor called David McAllister.

Well worth a listen, especially if you served in the Sennelager/Paderborn area

Some amusing anecdotes as to what is the best way to learn how to speak German,(sex or alcohol is involved)

Just think the future Captain of the German Soccer side could be the son of an RAF erk who settled in Germany (he is already Captain of the Under 21s)

Steve
I have just joined this forum and came across you post with the link to Radio 4 program.
What a little treasure of radio 4, don't know how I missed that one as i am an avid 4 listener.
And just for anyone else interested the link is still live.

Kind Regards
