There seems to be no mention of other Barracks in Bielefeld.
Reeth Barracks - was a Civilian Warehouse (near the Autobahn) bought from Karstadt and used by Accommodations Services and Freight Services until it was sold on in 2000.
Redcar Barracks - sited at Friedrich Hagemann Strasse. It was originally used by Barrack Services RAOC and also a Solid Fuel Depot (in the days when Coal & Coke were necessary). It was a 2nd world war Panzer Workshop. After the formation of 6 Ord Bn in Richmond Barracks, 64 Veh Coy were moved there from Recklinghausen. The Sports Field opposite was handed over to the German Authorities and is now the Training Centre for Arminia Bielefeld.
