PostSubject: Oxford Barracks   10/4/2008, 15:12

Am I right in saying that a number of episodes of the series Soldier! Soldier! were filmed in Oxford Barracks in the Early 90's? Question scratch

I seem to remember recognising some of the areas in the camp where filming was done- some around where 31 Fd Amb used to be.

It was after my time there, I left in 1976.

Yes mate, there was a series filmed there. They were kidding on to be an Armoured Infantry Bn. The Coldstream Guards were stationed in the camp at the time. A few mates were used as extras.

Block 1 at the front of camp and some pads were used.

Wish i had joined the Kings own Fusilers, they seemed to get all the best postings!!!!! lol!

Many thanks for that.

At least I know that I was not imagining things Very Happy

On another note, are there any Royal Scots out there Question Just before I left 31 Fd Amb in '76, the Royal Anglians handed over to another Regiment and I am pretty sure that it was Scottish. The Royal Scots rings a bell - any substance in that??

PostSubject: Soldier soldier series.   14/4/2008, 21:12

I remember this program well...I think that a wedding was filmed at the garrison church in Buller barracks...I was married in that church back in 1973! At the time I was stationed at osnabruck with 12 field wksps Reme. From 1971 to 73 I did a tour in Buller with the Coldstream and Grenadier guards Lad.

We travelled from Paderborn to play the Guards at football at Oxford Barracks once, this would be about...1982 I think. After the game the home team usually entertains the away team. On this occasion one of the Guards came to our dressing room to speak with the senior player (who happened to be a WO2) We were indeed invited to their club for drinks, that is all of us except a black lad we had on our team, he was not invited! We couldn't believe it, they expected us to drink with them while one of our lads sat on the bus because he was black. We told them to get stuffed and left.

PostSubject: Security Section   24/2/2009, 10:37

I seem to remember that there was a Security Section (Int Corps?) in Oxford Barracks whilst I was there. I think they were in one of the blocks next to the Gym.

Am I imagining things? scratch

Sorry Paul I made a mess of your.info. Put it down to ignorance of the system.
However , I am looking at a print of a picture of Munster, Princpalmarkt.
It has the legend "1st Battalion the Royal Scots MUNSTER 1976-1979.
So you were right. My wife was a SSAFA in Oxford at the time

PostSubject: Oxford Barracks Former Wehrmacht Kaserne Roxelerstr Münster    7/1/2013, 23:56

Hi There

I am writing to you regarding the former Wehrmacht Kaserne, Roxelerstr, Gievenbeck, now Oxford Barracks Münster, which was used as a Flakartillerie-Kaserne (anti-aircraft artillery) for the Luftwaffe and as Stabsquartier (headquarters) for the Ersatzstab (replacement Unit) of the VI. Armeekorps.

My request is concerned with a specific wall painting, which was placed most probably in the officers' mess south of the barracks on the other side of Roxelerstr or the mess hall inside the barracks.

I would like to find out, if the wall painting (which shows a scene from Goethe's Faust/Vor dem Tor/Soldaten: "Burgen mit hohen Zinnen") is still to be seen in the barracks and was not overpainted after the war.

I would be very grateful, if you could help me with my request.

Many thanks in advance for your help and support in this personal matter.

With best wishes for 2013.

Roxeler

Unfortunately you may be a month too late.

At the begining of this month there were ceremonies to mark the final departure of the last British Regiment to leave Munster. (The Yorkshire Regiment from "your" Oxford Barracks)

However there must be a rear party still there or someone who would have known where the Married Quarters were in Senden. Head for the Barracks which are off the Roxellerstrasse in the south west of the City. Enter Oxford Kaserne Munster Westfalen on your Google Earth search and you should get an accurate fix.

Good Luck with your project.
