Welcome back Sir, you have been missed

As a member of the General Staff and senior Gunner (Master Gunner?) there is no need to ask permission to enter but you should note the PMC did charge a round of drinks to your account in your absence. You have bought our collective silence

Elsewhere on the site your opinion as to whether Barnes Wallis, the inventor of the WW2 Bouncing Bomb, was ever a Gunner is awaited

Yeah right!! Don't suppose the Reeperbahn has changed much since the 60's. Welcome back, Badge! Do you still have your copy of The Gunner with the article about Barnes Wallis, I'm sure he was your OP Offr? Very Happy

Is the Reeperbahn still a going concern I wonder. I did my B2 Radio Op course in Hamburg 1953 and that area of Hamburg was a Military policeman's delight. He could earn many brownie points in one weekend to help him up the ladder of promotion.

Certainly was still going strong late 60s early 70s as I used to stop off there on a regular journey from Dusseldorf to the Baltic, never ceased to amaze me especially when you compared it to somewhere like the hole in the wall at Dortmund

We lived in Dortmund from 1972 - 1976 and I can honestly say it was the worst Posting that we had, I don't think the place had changed that much from when you lived there in '59, Les. Did you live in Camp 7? Best Posting we had was Lippstadt, lovely little town with very friendly inhabitants, I still go back every few years for a trip down Memory Lane, Churchill Barracks has now become Social Housing so it has gone down a bit since the British Army kept it clean! Laughing

I think the worst accomodation I had (As a single soldier)was probably Bournemouth Barracks Soltau, I was posted there from 1980 to 1982, we didn't think it was bad at the time but looking back it was pretty grim. The singlies accomodation was not designed as living quarters, all the rooms were different shapes & sizes from single rooms to five & six man rooms. Most had no curtains and none had carpets, the ceilings were very high and the rooms were lit by bare strip lights. The lower half of the walls were painted a sort of cream colour with the upper half light blue. This is probably the reason we spent all our free time in the corner bar, which was two minutes from the camp gates.

I'll never forget our first foray to the Reeperbahn, four of us drove up from Soltau. We were all fresh faced 19 or 20 year olds and were equally clueless, lambs to the slaughter lol. We found this place (Below) The Zillertal, what a place. It's a beer hall with a Bavarian theme. The waitresses would slide huge frothing steins of beer down the wooden tables as we sang along to the ever present 'oompah' band. Those were great days, I have some very fond memories of that place.



This is the inside, great place for a feww beers and a sing song...
