PostSubject: Lüdenscheid in Germany   5/4/2014, 09:26


We are Belgian military, who have lived several years in Lüdenscheid (Germany) .
We know of small barracks in Lüdenscheid named Claser (during Belgian occupation) there.
As far as we know it were Barracks of the German, during WWII, with the name "Standortverwaltung und Magazin Wefelshohl". For that we have found a little information.
Directly after the War it was occupied by the British Army, and then soon after them, the Belgians have used it as Depot for medical supply till the seventies.
But that's all we can find about it.
Does someone know more and do there exist pictures of it, because for the rest it is a mystery to us.
And we would like to find out more.

Thanks for your help.

thanks, i know the homepage, but that's almost anything we could find.
I have a German history magazine where it is mentioned too, but that article stops in 1946, with no mentioning what happened after the war.

Welcome Pinguina

From 24 May 1945 responsibility for Lüdenscheid was the 49th (West Riding) Infantry Division “The Polar Bears” with their HQ in Neheim then Schloss Herdingen south of Neheim from Apr 46

11th Battalion Royal Scots Fusiliers were the first British Troops in Bohlof Kaserne Lündenscheid until Apr 46 replaced by 124th (Highland) Light Anti-Aircraft Regiment RA until Jun 46 replaced by 1st/7th Battalion Middlesex Regiment until their disbandment Oct 46 when the division was also disbanded replaced by 2nd Belgian Infantry Division understand their HQ was located in Lüdenscheid barracks unknown

Also recorded is the 49th (West Riding) Infantry Division Heavy Driving School that was located in the Flak Kaserne Lüdenscheid

Hope this helps and best regards
