Worth passing on for those living in Germany

Good news: Our project continues!
We have now widened our horizon and are currently preparing a new exhibition on behalf of the NRW State Parliament in Düsseldorf – and of course guided tours will be on offer again as well!
Information concerning the exhibition:
The “British in North-Rhein Westphalia” exhibition throws a new light on the numerous and varied Anglo-German relationships, dating from 1945 through to the present day: from the requisition of housing, to cooperation at the workplace, the celebration of carnival and sport events, friendships, love and marriage, up to visits by the Queen to various garrison towns and military manoeuvres. The exhibition ends with the as-of-yet unanswered question: “What remains?”.
The exhibition, curated by Dr. Bettina Blum, is based on the successful Paderborn exhibition “British in Westphalia”, which has been readapted especially for the NRW State Parliament and contains numerous photos and objects specific to the Rhein area – including objects from the former Headquarters at Mönchengladbach.
The bilingual exhibition presents a whole series of fresh, unusual, and very personal insights that invite its visitors into a discussion.
Opening times and guided tours:
The exhibition in the NRW State Parliament (Landtag) in Düsseldorf will be open to the public from the 4th May through to 2nd June 2019, and can be visited on Saturdays and Sundays between 11:00 – 17:00 hours.
Entrance: Free of charge.
With effect from 9th May 2019, guided tours in English and in German can be booked by groups of all sizes. The guided tours through the exhibition will be available at the weekends between 11:00 - 16.00 hours, and weekdays between 10.00 and 15.00 hours (Fridays up to 13.00 hours).
The duration of the guided tours is approx. 60 minutes. We will gladly integrate your personal interests, where possible.

Steve,
Recently received a personal invite to the Exhibition from the President of the Landtags.

Guest of Honour 'The Baroness Faulkner of Margravine' will be present.

Sadly, due to family commitments, I had to turn the Invitation down. I was looking forward to a couple of days in Düsselldorf

I had submitted a collection of my slides depicting parachuting at Bad Lippspringe from 1969 and other parafinalia to Bettina for the Exhibition. A couple of the items I have donated to the Paderborn Archives.

Well done that man, via Pborn4 have submitted a map of BAOR on reformation of the 7th Armoured Division 1 Mar 49 and I have added an Order of Battle of divisional major units producing a three page display, also a CD with scans of a booklet produced in 1948 for soldiers and families posted to BAOR, this will appear as a display (makes interesting reading)

Have also received an invite and will be going to Düsseldorf just for the day, DB ticket bought on line great price bought in advance with my Bahn Card, should prove an interesting day, will be taking my camera
