PostSubject: Looking for my father Michael   28/12/2008, 13:30

I am born 08.01.1958 and I try to find my father via this forum. For about 50 years, I was sure, he was dead. However when I removed my mother into a new flat this year, I found an old picture, or to be precise, half of a picture. The name of the man on that picture is Michael. My mothers name was Inge Zement. Presently I cannot post that picture, I try to find a solution for that. On request, I will send the picture via E-Mail.
Thats all I know. He must have been in Celle as a soldier or even a civil employee beginning of 1957 ( calculated 9 months backwards from my date of birth). My mother doesn`t remember anything else. Why he left my mother is unclear. Maybe he was transfered to another unit? I am very sure, he doesn`t even know anything about me. According to the picture, he should be at least 75 years old now, if he is still alive.
Has anybody in this forum an idea, how to find out who this man was. I have no financial interests or anything like this. Since 1976 I am an officer in the German Airforce, presently as a LtCol.
Would be great, if anyone is able to help. Please contact:

Thanks for any help
Klaus

Here is a part photograph sent to me by Klaus. Click on the image for a bigger photograph.



Michael was apparently never seen in uniform, and told Klaus's mother that he was an Officer.

Does his face ring any bells with anyone who was in the Celle area in the late 1950's?

Dear All,

in the meantime, my mother died 3rd August 2009. So no chance for me to get further information. However in her personal belongings, I found a name from the time I was born, which is Mr. Wilde. I never heard this name from my mother when she was living. I don`t know whether this fits to Michael, but at least it is a chance. So it could be, his compete name was "Michael Wilde". It could be. Does anyone see a chance for me, this information could be of help?

Kind regards

Klaus Schuette

Paul, does the Legion in the UK have a Lost Trails column in it's magazine as the Canadian one does? If so this could assist Klaus.

Dear Klaus
I am afraid I do not reconise the man in the photograph, and the name of Wilde means nothing. I am so sorry to here of your mother, and I wish every success in your search

Michael was a fairly common name back in the 40's & 50's I am a Michael myself (Born 1953 at BMH Hannover so not your man)

Best bet is to try and find out was units were in the Celle area in 1957 and write to the Regimental Associations. Even where a Regiment disbanded or amalgamated there is usually still an Association even if the unit is called something else today.

Klaus,

My sincere condolences to you and yours over the passing of your mother.

As you have probably noticed, I have been absent from the site for quite a while and am only just beginning to find my feet again.

As for the "Lost Trails", there is a similar item in the Legion magazine over here, but it can take some time for entries to be made. I will look out the contact details and send them on.

Paul.

Hi Klaus,

I sympathise with you with your problem. Why not try the Headquarters in London of the Salvation Army? This is not as absurd as it might seem as they have an effective department which deals with the tracing of lost relatives.

I joined the Army in 1958 and arived in BAOR in Sep 1961 as the Berlin Wall was being erected.

klaus, you say your father might have been a soldier or civilian employee in 1957 in celle and you dont know why he left could he have also been based at raf celle?

The base was returned to the German government on 27 November 1957, and the site is now controlled by the German Bundeswehr (Federal Defence Force).[1]

Celle is now the "Celle Air Base", and home to the German Army Aviators Corps

could this be the reason your father left perhaps he was posted some where else or returned to the uk.

have had a look for other units based in celle in 1957 and have only come up with the black watch .

good luck in your search.
