PostSubject: Minden   22/4/2008, 19:49

In 1958 I was posted to Minden as Unit Pay Clerk to, I think, 2nd Bn Royal Inniskiling Fusiliers. I was only there for a month but I believe the barracks may have been Elizabeth. My accommodation was on 1st Floor and we could look out onto the main road outside. I was fortunate enough to meet Erica on my first Friday and first visit into town. Can't remember the pub but, during the next couple of weeks, the Weser and the Weserbrucke took on a memorable significance. There was, I believe, a pub called Dormhof and I remember going to a pub called Die Affenklause where live monkeys could be seen through the glass side wall. Does anyone remember these places and can anyone from 2nd Bn Royal Inniskillings confirm their tour of duty in Minden??
