PostSubject: Book Project   26/6/2013, 18:00

All,
Could you please promulgate the following appeal  
British forces will have rebased out of Germany by 2020, earlier if conditions permit. HQ BFG has the intent of developing a memento to remember our time in Germany.
The rebasing will bring to an end the longest overseas deployment for the British Army since India in the 19th and 20th Century. About 2 million British citizens have passed through British Forces Germany in its 70 year history; either as soldiers, airmen, National Servicemen, civil servants or family members with an estimate of some 200,000 being born in either the British Military Hospitals or local German clinics.
The deployment is one of reconciliation and integration, reconstruction and democratization and we believe deserves to be remembered.
It is our intent to construct a book; heavy on pictures rather than prose. The aim is for it to be theme based, for example exercises, adventure training and sports, education and so on. We will continue to develop these. The timescale is from 1945 until perhaps 2015 with a publishing date in late 2015.
We would want to make the book affordable, but if it did make a profit this would be donated to charity.
The whole project will stand or fall by the pictures in the book. We are making an appeal for individuals or organisations to donate pictures showing activities during the British presence in Germany. In order for them to be useful they would need to be:
- Good quality
- Interesting
- Supplied with information (when, where, who, what)
Digital or slide is obviously best, but we may be able to use a print of a photo, particularly if the subject matter is interesting.
Whilst we would be more than happy to credit photographers, by sending us a photo we assume permission to use it is given.
Please send your images to:

Or phone Lt Col Geoff Hinton - 0049 (0)172 2187914 for more information.

A book ? A tome at least !
Even at my level, during twelve years, in addition to the usual annual stuff, we went on training to Libya, Denmark, Canada. Then there was that nastiness "over the water", would they want pictures of that too ?

A book about BAOR with hundreds of photographs would sell well to those who served.I hope that they get a really good response and the book is published.I know my own unit had lots of photographs taken when they were there on their various tours.Contact Royal Regiment of Scotland (A&SH) at Stirling Castle and no doubt they will respond to a request for photographs.

I think it would be a popular idea all round, BAOR will soon be a thing of the past.

I know that units had their own photographers and I'm sure that there are thousands of photo's out there in unit archives and regimental home HQ's.
