PostSubject: Looking for my Dad James Redmond   17/3/2014, 23:42

Hello

My Name is Anna and I'm looking for my Dad. He was stationed until 1986/87 in Osnabrück. My Mother was then called Silke Behrenfeld and was 20 Years old.
Since my mother is no contact I got no informations about my father.  
I was born on 13.10.1986 in Mettingen near Osnabrück.
With so little Information, is is very difficult but I want to try everything.
I would love to tell him that he is grandfather.

I hope you can help me

Sincererly yours

Anna B.

Hello Anna
We would need some information, his name and what regiment or barracks was he at while stationed in Osnabrück. Also any idea where he came from in UK.

I know that it is almost impossible without informations. But I want to try just about anything.My greatest wish is to meet at least one half of my parents.

Hallo Anna,

ich habe in meiner beruflichen Taetigkeit bei den Streitkraeften viel mit Vaterschaftssachen zu tun.
Ohne die die Dienst-Nr. Deines Vaters (Service No) und seinen Namen duerfte es schwer sein, ihn direkt ausfindig zu machen.

Meine Empfehlung: wende Dich an das deutsche Jugendamt, das fuer Deinen Geburtsort zustaendig war, ich weiss nicht, ob Mettingen ein eigenes hat, sonst muesste das Osnabrueck sein.
Dort wird man sich nach Deiner Geburt bemueht haben, ihn zu ermtteln.

Wenn Du diese Informationen hast, melde Dich wieder hier, ich werde dir dann die Anschrift der Erfassungsstelle der Army geben.

LG,

Ms_OS

Ich habe leider gar keine Informationen auch beim Jugendamt sind keine Daten meines Vaters hinterlegt. Ich kenne nur den Namen meiner Mutter und die Aussage von ihr das mein Vater vor meiner Geburt das Land wieder verlassen hat. Ich weiss das meine Suche aussichtslos ist aber ich will alles probiert haben

Tut mir leid, ich glaube, da ist dann wenig zu machen. Hast Du schon mal ans deutsche Fernsehen gedacht, da gibt es doch eine Sendung, in der Verwandte und Freunde ausfindig gemacht werden?

LG

Diese Sendungen können/dürfen nichts tun da die Adoption damals eigentlich inkognito war. Außerdem funktioniert auch bei denen die Suche nur, wenn meine Mutter den Namen meines Vater rausgeben würde und das tut sie leider nicht.

There was a song......... WW1 vintage, I think, something like -

                Apres la guerre finis,
                Tous les soldats partis,
                Mademoiselle avec picanniny,
                Souvenir des bloody Anglais

Pardon my French  ,  & Canucks forgive the errors,  It's been a long time since I had to learn it.

But this sort of thing ain't funny and I feel for the lasses who come up with such requests.
I hope they get answers.  Do the military close ranks & protect the Brits who dodge their responsibilities?   ............ And but for the Grace of God.......... !!!!!!!

I can remember the days when soldiers who got local girls pregnant being asked if they would like a posting back to the UK - bad order!!

I can't remember NS lads in my lot caused much aggro in that direction........... When Tiger Tim's Weekly was advanced reading material for some, it's likely the subject & mechanics of procreation were unknown subjects for one or two.  If the rest were well up in theory they were deficient in practical experience. And, of course, ten years after WW2, the locals weren't keen on mixing with the winners.  

Biggest irritation for the shopkeepers was the practice of taking a  watch or camera on HP just a week or so before demob & waving two fingers of scorn at an honest trader from the back of the QL as the lucky ones headed for the train to the Hook.  Young Maurice, a Jewish Bty. Clerk, sorted this out for a cut of the traders' profits. With access to everyone's demob date, he did the paper work in camp , geared up weekly payments to remaining pay days  and collected instalments.

There are still some folks looking for Dad in the Canadian Army from Holland, UK and Germany. It's a shame, but in some cases they are better off not knowing them.

Any body who was born between 1939 and 1945 and adopted in my home town was practically guaranteed to be a from a soldier posted there at the officer training camp in Brockville Ont.

I'm still looking Sad

I know his first name is James. He left Osnabrück in the spring of 1986.

The German youth office does not want to call me his surname, since he knew nothing about the pregnancy.
My parents had a relationship for several months.Perhaps there is someone from his former environment who remembered it.

I know there is not much information.
I just don't want to give up.

Now I have some Information about my Dad.
He calles himself James Redmond.
He was verry tall and dark-haired.
He had a relationship with my mother, but suddenly he was gone.

He probably left the country before my birth (October 86)

I hope someone can help me.
I don't know my mother, but at least I want to get to know my father

Thanks
