As was mine Barney,4 November 1974.
A thing that amused me that when she graduated she had a job as an area manager with NAAFI in Germany,she took driving lessons and passed her test with a German driving school,so she ended up with a German licence stating place of birth as Hannover,probably the best English speaking German in the country.

BMH Baby.
You should think yourself lucky you made it in time to the BMH,when we were stationed in Wolfenbüttel several pregnant ladies did'nt wait but had their babies delivered by an MSO driver on the back seat of a VW beetle!One of my kids was born in BMH Hannover.The BMHs in Germany were of a very high standard,shame they are all gone!

When we were posted to Fallingbostel (Royal Hussars) one of the first jobs I was given was to "find the hospital". Yes drive to Hannover and find the hospital. Slight problem being that I'd never been to Hannover and I had no directions and no map.

Several hours later I arrived back to report I had been unable to locate it suprise suprise> They repeated this task a few days later and growing tired of this game I resorted to having to ask a number of taxi drivers.

At a later date I had a massive bollocking off a Matron when after getting lost in the hospital she loomed up on me uttering what are you doing here! I'd ended up on the wrong ward after reception mis-directed me.

My youngest SHOULD have been born at BMH Hannover but the heating packed up, (Jan 1971), so the Yugoslav ambulance driver had to go to Rinteln.
The maternity unit was a total disgrace.

PostSubject: Typhoid in Hannover 1948   10/7/2011, 07:09

Hi, when we were living in Hannover, 1948-49, my Dad caught typhoid fever and spent weeks in BMH. The resulting mass-innocculation of the entire British forces and families in Hannover made the name of Sgt. B. Precious very unpopular!
At the same time I had my tonsils removed in RMH, a week's stay at that time. When my sister Maureen was born there on 20th June 1948, Mum spent a full 3 weeks in hospital. These long stays were normal in the early days after the war, because of the fear of infection I suppose.
Would love to hear from anyone who remembers the typhoid incident.

No longer any BMHs or RAMC, Crying or Very sad and they will never be back. To get just one Military hospital up to standard that they were, would take about 15 years.

The RAMC members still meet very two years over a long weekend. Our last reunion was in 2010 and nearly 500 of us attended over. The next is in Feb 2012.

Every year a lot of us attend the sports day for the medic and todays young medics love to hear about the old days.

I once visited a mate who was laid up in BMH Hannover, other than that I don't think I had much to do with the place. My son was born in BMH Rinteln and my daughter in BMH Munster, both were very good.

I served in BMH Hannover in the Pay Office from 77-79 and when I left on posting to Honne my son ended up being born in BMH Hannover. What a ride that was from Honne to Hannover in time for the birth.

Things never change, my daughter spent a few weeks in Rinteln in early '75, she had an infection from her smallpox jab, it was a complete s**t hole!
