It was an RAF hospital but served all forces in the area. Our first was born there and I was army. I also spent a short time in there with a cyst under a tooth.

During my time at RAF Eindhoven '53-'56 I transported (as a MT driver) quite a few wives to this hospital to have their offsping. I took in one and came out with two and a few times three, counting the mother!!
Although I never visited as a patient I found it to be a very clean and capable hospital but then the RAF did have the best doctors....!!

My first was also born in 1973 at Wegberg. Sadly we lost her in 1977. I have a very tatty old postcard of Wegberg in aerial view. The Wegberg ring was a famous car race track at one point I understand?

First of all, Welcome. The only time I ever went to a BMH was in Wegberg. He said it wouldn't hurt, I have reason to believe he told me a "Fibby", it hurt like hell. However, the Staff were great, the food outstanding and considering my Father was RAF, he told me it was my fault for letting the Family down for being a "Pongo".

Our family has particularly fond memories of RAF (H) Wegberg. Our second son was born there in Dec 1970 when we were living in Rheindahlen. Our third son was born there in Feb 1977 when we were living in Weeze (RAF Laarbruch). The German midwife immediately recognised my wife not only because of our name but because of the speed and ease with which she was able to give birth. A great hospital and lovely staff.

I have mixed feelings and memories of RAF Wegberg. 1972 was in the orthopaedic ward for 4 weeks with a very bad injury to my arm, was well looked after and had a great time hiding the cans of stout under my bed, aided and abetted by a young nurse called Williams.

The parting memory is one of great sadness. Our son Jamie was born in 25th April 1974, healthy boy, no problems, tragically died of a cot death in the maternity ward, only 5 days old and is now laid to rest in the Military Cemetery Rheindahlen, there are so many babies buried there.
