Time to say goodbye

Faster than feared - namely from August 2012 - the British barracks at the Hohe Wende [Trenchard Barracks] will be orphaned. The departure has begun: time to say goodbye.

CELLE. Yesterday around noon pulled two high-ranking British officers before the new town hall in Celle, none of the usual courtesy visits with Lord Mayor Dirk Ulrich Mende (SPD) was on. The two soldiers brought new commands from London: the British garrison in Celle's days are numbered. In August 2012, the last Fusilier in the barracks at the Hohe Wende accounts for the light. Until then, it had only said that the British withdrawal from Germany should be completed by the year 2020.

Mende is been surprised by this much faster development and deeply regrets this: "more than 60 years the British troops in our city were, well over 300 years is our close historical relationship with England." We are all we must do, that the cultural connection is maintained. "The Celle have perceived always them as enrichment."

The specific design of the window the city have it now but also in the hand, to bring independent plans on the way. "The blow of redeployment of Prime Minister David Cameron has taught us quite some time ago", so Mende. Therefore the administrative assistants had engaged for weeks and months the theme: "We are not so unprepared."

The beginning of the redeployment will be introduced with Celle as Brigadier Jonathan Forbes Watson, Commander of the British support group Germany: "For a transitional period, the city is still cultural centre of the English army."

The withdrawal of the Royal Fusiliers anyway for August 2012 planned was, so Michael Whitehurst, spokesman for the 1st British Division in Herford, CZ demand.: "Current plans however showed that the substitutes infantry battalion originally for Celle is transferred to England and thus Celle no force exists for more." This single decision is not relevant for the current total deduction planning according to Whitehurst: "These plans are very complex."

On mountains, no surprise as the yesterday's in Celle will provide his knowledge so Whitehurst: "This case has so arising." "However as well as all Exchange troop movements have been stopped after Germany." "We see for months, that the withdrawal has begun long ago even if we are to have even a Sanitätsbatallion", to Bergen's Mayor Rainer Prokop (CDU): "We need to us urgently to the new situation adjustment." After all the Celle on the Goodbye "their" British are likely to be curious, so Whitehurst: "I am sure the Fusiliers to adopt due."

Yesterday was the marching out of the 2nd Battalion Royal Regiment of Fusiliers. An era came to an end. (How sad that is! Sad )

Most of the bars in Celle were out of bounds to British troops when I was there in the early to mid 1970s.

They did have the notorious Teufel bar though with live sex acts ! What a Face

Talking about cinemas, the one in Fally (not the SKC), used to have a porn night, Tuesdays i think, where full length uncensored blue movie were shown.
