B.M.H. Wuppertal, was formally "The Queen Elizabeth the Second", British Military Hospital, Wuppertal. This was as in 1953, when the hospital was returned to the german authorities, the City of Wuppertal. Quite possibly in 1948, it was called B.M.H. The Princess Elizabeth Hospital"? Today it is known as the "Bethesda Krankenhaus", which is located on Hainstrasse Number 35, D-42109 Wuppertal, Germany

Princess Margaret was a visitor to Wuppertal way back in the days of Black and White Newsreels - 26 May 1955

She presented Colours to the Suffolk Regiment (who looked good in BD and Lee Enfield rifle drill with bayonets) in Harding Barracks, Wuppertal.

and from another source:

The Diedenhofen barracks ( 51 ° 14 ′ 21 ″ N, 7 ° 12 ′ 5 ″ E ) in Wuppertal- Ronsdorf , named after the town of Diedenhofen in Lorraine, was built as a forest barracks from 1937 . The topping-out ceremony was celebrated on September 3, 1939 and, after completion in the spring of 1939, was taken over by Lieutenant Colonel Versen and his 1st Division Cavalry Rifle Regiment. In 1941 the forest barracks was renamed Diedenhofen barracks.

After the Second World War, on April 24, 1946, it was converted into a makeshift hospital with the name " Deutsches Lazarett Wuppertal-Ronsdorf ", and then on July 31, 1951, like the other barracks, it was confiscated and used by the British Armed Forces. During this time it was called "Keightley Barracks", named after General Sir Charles Frederic Keightley (1901–1974).
[The Amateur Dramatics Theatre in Dempsey Barracks Schl Neuhaus was named the Keightley Theatre - opened and dedicated by the Mrs Keightley]
