Can anyone point me in the right direction for info/memories about the early BAOR? Thinking of Barrack life, food in post-war FRG, recreation and sport, meeting locals , an Officers life, general non-exercise stuff.

Thanks in advance!

Take a look in Hansard using key words:
British Army of the Rhine, Berlin, Minden, Sennelager, Iserlohn, Muenster, Soltau, Hohne,
look here
or contact (Dr).

and glance at the "Red Hackle" Regimental Magazines published by the Black Watch during their times in Germany.

Not all beer and skittles - everyone had a strict special-to-arm training regime and a role to fill, an exhausting competitive sport and
challenging adventure training pursuits, as well as a wide range of duties: Berlin blockade, Border Guards, Site Guards, as well as convoy and escort runs (rail and road). Jocks also managed some Highland Games.

Interested to see your thesis when complete?
