My mum - Brenda Ahnefeld - used to be the housing officer at Rhodesia Barracks Minden. She always remebered her time there fondly. Sadly, she died in 2005.

Hi Debbie..sorry to hear of your loss. My Dad was a PCLU Officer and had his Office in Rhodesia Barracks..we were there in Minden from Oct 81 Summer 83...good memories of the place and made some good friends there. Sad to see how all the places are now changing..still in contact with a friend who stayed in Minden as his father left the Army and went onto the German net...he said recently how Minden was 'empty' since the British Army left..definite 'gap' and how different it all is...Joined up myself and was in Detmold from 86 thru to 92..only visited Minden a couple of times..but went by Rhodesia Barracks and into the Salvation Army shop where I used to collect my papers for my paper round as a kid..ofcourse the place was still in full swing as an Army town then..but quiet a few of us who are now world wide who served together plan to come back one day soon..I now live on the west coast France having left the forces thru injury..but still remember my childhood in Minden and my serving days like it were yesterday.

Debbie...I echo Wello818's words....Red Fred's was an oasis in the town...Cubs, the cinema.....fond fond memories as an Army Sticky!!...

Visited back in 1998.....and was gobsmacked at how the place had changed....I guess it was back to being a provincial market town after the Brits left.

Would like to hear from anybody who was at Lancaster or Suffolk Schools from 1976-1978....
