PostSubject: Units at Oxford Barracks   25/11/2009, 22:07


Just to say I was at Oxford Barracks from October 1955 to July 1957. My unit was the 4th Field Ambulance and I notice this is not mentioned on the list of units stationed there over the years. I can't say how long they had been there or how long they stayed after 1957. The KRRC followed by the Royal Hampshires were the infantry regiments I recall.

Welcome to the Forum and main site Geoff.

That is just the sort of information that we look for - someone who was there!!

I will get on to that as soon as I can.

I'm sure this will be of interest to Paul and anyone compiling a history of various units. I too find it interesting. Pushing 73 now it all seems a long time ago and, at the moment , I'm just looking through some old photos of my time in Munster as I'm taking a trip to the Xmas Market there on Sunday. I laughed when I saw that 4th Field Ambulance had been stationed in Hong Kong. I remeber at the end of basic training we were all given a choice of where we would like to be posted. Hong kong and Washington DC were the favourites. We all ended up in Germany. Nevertheless, I did enjoy it there.

PostSubject: Oxford Barracks Former Wehrmacht Kaserne Roxelerstr Münster   7/1/2013, 23:51

Dear All

I am writing to you regarding the former Wehrmacht Kaserne, Roxelerstr, Gievenbeck, now Oxford Barracks Münster, which was used as a Flakartillerie-Kaserne (anti-aircraft artillery) for the Luftwaffe and as Stabsquartier (headquarters) for the Ersatzstab (replacement Unit) of the VI. Armeekorps.

My request is concerned with a specific wall painting, which was placed most probably in the officers' mess south of the barracks on the other side of Roxelerstr or the mess hall inside the barracks.

I would like to find out, if the wall painting (which shows a scene from Goethe's Faust/Vor dem Tor/Soldaten: "Burgen mit hohen Zinnen") is still to be seen in the barracks and was not overpainted after the war.

I would be very grateful, if you could help me with my request.

Many thanks in advance for your help and support in this personal matter.

With best wishes for 2013.

Roxeler
