PostSubject: Allied Control Commission Germany 1945   19/2/2019, 15:32

Hi,

I have a photograph of my Grandfather, Jens Frederick Thorn, a retired Police Sergeant, with a inscription on the back dated March 1946 "standing outside the British Headquarters in Berlin."

I have plans to visit Berlin in March 2019 and would love to know the whereabouts in Berlin of the Allied Control Commission HQ and whether there is any evidence of it today. Even to visit the road would be great.
My understanding is that it may have been in the Charlottenburg district?

Does anyone know this information?

Additionally, it would be useful to know where my Grandfather would have been barracked and any information of what an ex Police officer would have been doing from day to day in Berlin at this time.

My Grandfather was 51 at the time and married with 3 grown up children and contrived to meet a German lady in Berlin whom he eventually married in 1951.

Previously he had been a Police Office in London's East End and was probably at the battle of Cable Street!

Unfortunately, there's no-one left for me to find out more about this intriguing story!

Any information would be gratefully received, particularly on what is still to see in modern day Berlin.

Thanks,

Colin

Can give you an address for the Headquarters British Troops Berlin as at 31 Mar 47, as taken from a copy of an original document:

Marine House, Krisordamm (bad spelling should be Kaiserdamm), Charlottenburg, Berlin

This document was in the book "Berlin and the British Ally 1945 - 1990 by Major General RJS Corbett CB"

Hope this helps and best of luck with your research

Thanks Steve,

That's most useful. This gives me a focal point to move forward!

I'm going to try and find the book you quoted too.

Much appreciated.

Thanks Dave. The British Central Police Station looks promising.

From your experience and knowledge of the subject, where would you think an ex Police officer would likely have been barracked? I can link him loosely to the Charlottenburg / Spandau regions.

Could it have been at any of the specific army barrack locations?

Thanks for all this info.

Colin.

Sorry, I really have no idea. He may have been billeted in a private house. if he was working for Mil Gov then he might have stayed in the camp

HQ BTB (Camp)
Ratzeburger Allee
