A Barracks Changes Hands

14. March 50 years ago was a solemn day and Hans Herzberg has him in memories. German and British soldiers were in the barracks at the Hans-Böckler-Allee, Herzberg was performed the national anthem "and then the gates were opened, hundreds Hanover flocked in excited".

Hans Herzberg, now 91 years old, was then the head of the army music corps I. That orchestra so that also played on Friday in the Kurt-Schumacher-Barracks - to 50-year anniversary one for Hanover and the armed forces highly symbolic events. On that March day of 1958 gave the British Brigadier General Major Siewat Lipscome the German official after the former commander of the "Stirling House" known barracks building at Hans-Böckler-Allee. That was one part little more than a lush staged formality. On the other hand, reflected in the fact, however, the gradual reconquest of the autonomy of German and a good relationship with the British, who had become by the occupying forces to allies.

After the war, the British town police captain had taken his seat at City Hall. The military administration for the district and the province, however, were first in the Geha office building came in on Podbielskistraße before the former into the General Command moved on Misburger dam, now the Hans-Böckler-Allee. If the first Prime Minister of Lower Saxony, Hinrich Wilhelm Kopf, the British asked for something, or if someone ordered to report, then they had to appear there, in the originally built for army building. The departure of the British marked the end of this phase thus externally.
During the ceremony on Friday reminded the British Brigadier Robert Weighill and the German Colonel Dirk jaws on the day 50 years ago. Today in the Kurt-Schumacher-barracks of the staff of the Division response forces and the military administration north with about 1,400 soldiers and staff are housed. Hans Herzberg however, felt in the time of delivery of the 'Stirling key "back:" That was more than a sober management process. "

Oliver

Thank you for the translation, very useful

Steve will doubtless confirm in due course but I believe Stirling House was the site of the military HQ Hannover District and the Control Commission Germany equivalent, responsible for civil matters in the embryo Lower Saxony Province. In later years it was briefly HQ 4 Division before it moved to Herford

JPW,
I was at Stirling House between 1955 and 1957.

If you go to the Barracks section and bring up Stirling House there is much more information that I entered some time ago.

Noch ein bier,

Norman.

86 Movement Unit RAF who manned the RTO on Hannover Station were billeted in Stirling House . I was based here for six weeks in the Summer of 1957. I remember the solidity of the huge barrack blocks, and the SS emblems carved in stone over some entrances.

Tone587,
I can recall the RAF Movements unit at Stirling House as a couple of them, whose names I cannot remember after all these years, played in the the HQ football side with me. I must just have missed meeting you as I was posted back to the UK in early June of 1957. Hannover was a great posting and the District HQ was a dream posting.

Did you ever walk the mile or so down the road to the village of Kleefeld? Turn right out of Stirling House on to the Hans Bockler Allee. Our local was the White Swan pub in the village and the NAAFI shop was just a little bit further on.

Happy days indeed!!
