What I have read shows there's much about the NI experience that is worth sharing with all, apart from those who were involved. Seems logical & beneficial to everybody for a new topic to be opened which is devoted to NI matters.

What ? No volunteers ? I don't believe it !

Bound to be interest old chap, it was units from BAOR that went to NI, taking them away from deterring the Soviets.

"Deviation" ? "Confusing" ? On this website ?

Balderdash !

Eh up, Brum ! Nice to see you in accord ! Agreed BAOR units were involved in NI. Well worth a separate topic , and quite relevant to a BFG website.

But not relevant to "German Behaviour" after sneaking into that topic, and all such deviations, for that's what they are, can be worthy of their own spot where additions & expansions on their own theme can be given proper prominence . NI is one such and keeping all accounts of related experiences together adds to their value.

New Topic please ! Go to it !

"Deviation" ? I'll give some deviation pal !

What could possibly be the origin of a word like "balderdash" ?

(. . . and how do you pronounce "cpuld" ?).

B. Cpuld ....... Caused by inexcusable finger trouble or possibly an abbreviation
for the similarly sounding "Coupled", which indicates DEVIOUS

PostSubject: Re: German behaviour   7/7/2012, 18:21

Earlier on in this thread, several of you mentioned the heaters -- or lack thereof -- in your barracks.

I distinctly remember oil space heaters lit by those taper things one lit then dropped into the top of them -- into the pool of oil if memory serves (might be wrong on that point. Does seem an opportunity for one helluva flash fire to me!). Damn things reeked.

On my Dad's 2nd tour, housing was at a premium and after staying with German friends for 3 months we moved into a dinky 2-room place in a tiny village just over the hills from the Sorpe sea called Mellen, not far from a town out along the Hoennetal called Balve. It consisted of a large kitchen and a bedroom off the side. Mom and Dad had the bedroom and I slept on a horse-hair divan in the kitchen (lit by a round flourescent light in the middle of the ceiling one could hear blinking into life when Mom got up and turned it on in the mornings....I hated that sound!).

At the foot of the divan was an ancient old space heater. Dad had to truck down to the back shed every other day or so, pump out oil from the large tank down there into some sort of jerry can or whatever and haul that up to the room to fill the damn thing. Even now, some 40+ years later (aaaaaghh!!!) I can still recall the aroma of damp that permeated the rooms and this thing's oil. Stifling.

We also boiled our water, as an aside. And Mom used what she referred to as her German kettle to make coffee or tea. A coil one plugged in and stuck into the water...as the coil heated up it of course boiled the water. Imagine sticking a coil into a cup or container of water! But that was what was used.

She also had her "German washing machine". a long-handled thing with a large perforated brass bell on the end. This thing would be plunged up and down in a tub of water full of clothes, the idea being it agitated soapy water through the clothes. One step up, I suppose, from taking them down to the river and pounding them on the rocks!

Primitive....but interesting.

Clever lot these Germans ! Long handled thing with bells on ! Sounds a bit like our more basic "posher".......... long handled thing with three smaller bits on one end that was shoved up & down in the dolly tub , or built in copper if the house was older. But bells ! That sounds exotic,....... !'Exclamation'

Had one once that worked off the fag lighter socket in the motor,,,,,,,,,, but sticking a compo tin half full of water on the exhaust manifold could be quicker, but dodgy if it got anywhere near the spark plugs. Come to think of it, kids dined on tins of baby food on a journey which were heated the same way.

Bless you sir !
What we have, here pictured, is the much -discussed-earlier, "brew stick".
A barrackroom would club together to buy one.
Having cadged a large can from the cookhouse and with a stock of tea and sugar, left over from the guard's supper, you had the hub of a warm, enclosing little community to which you belonged. Totally alien to the civilian world but very important to the young soldier. The tea was usually shite but that was irrelevelent.
(Shit I've spelt that wrong, EPC (A) shot to bits). If anyone reading this never experienced such comradeship, then your life is that much the poorer for it.
Sah !
