The 1st Batalliom Grenadier Guards were Garrison troops after the war with the 2nd Batallion across the river in Siegburg.

On 1st Jan 1946 I was sent to Marienheide to take over a former Hitler Jugend barracks and organise a Ski centre for troops in the area.

Nothing came of it because at the end of Feb. the batallion moved to Kiel Holtenau.

After demob in June 1946 I returned to Bonn having joined the Control Commission for Germany. In 1947 I was the first British person given permission to marry a German.

Dear Sir,
with interest I read your message.
I am retired German Staff Officer living near Bonn.
If you need newer information concerning f.e. Marienheide let me know.
At the moment I am preparing a short report about the former british barracks called Gort Barracks/LLanelly Baracks situated near Düsseldorf (Hubbelrath) Best infos I found with BAOR. If you have an idea, please let me know.
Best regards
Ernst J.v.d.Schmitt
