Welcome Jona, we hope you visit us often.

In regards to your question, do you have any idea of the location of the building you are looking for?

Paul.

Thank you Paul.

Nice postcards but I couldn't find "my" house. I arrived at Munsterlager on 02 April, 1945 and left with the Schlageter Division about ten days later (2nd Brit. Army ante porte). The only thing I remember is hanging around at the "Kommandantur" most of the time.

I will see if I can find anything else. Would your initials possibly be HM?

Paul -

Is there a "History of the 2nd British Army"? I would like to find out
when they were in the Celle area in 45,
when they arrived at Munsterlager,
what was the situation there, any resistance or had everybody left the place,
what happened to the German prisoners in the American camps when the British took over???

Thank you,
Horst

I was hunting around for bits and pieces, and came across a similar subject on another website, and one post had a similar location.
