No Jim, the Berlin Bulletin was a separate entity (4 x sides of A4 I recall) from the Sixth Sense, which is still on sale in BFG and even has a website address (although they don't update it as often as they could).

There was another paper called the Forces Echo which ran for a while, but that died out a few years back.

Jim

I think Sixth Sense was the succesor to Beaver. the newspaper of the Canadian Brigade published from Soest.

6 Brigade took over the all Canadian assets on their return to BAOR in the early 70s and with official encouragement continued to produce the newspaper, hence the name, though inilitially there was a limited circulation and not all BAOR news/garrisons were covered.

Stephen/Steve may be able to confirm my theory

That link updates every Friday Jim. It's worth the 10 minutes it takes to read it, but it is still full of the 1950's 'positive thought' reporting style, which I sort of like if I'm honest. It makes a change from all the 'doom and gloom' we read daily over here. Very Happy

Correct JPW

The Sixth Sense is printing a Special Anniversary Supplement next week on the first issue the newspaper was for 6th Armoured Brigade if not on the web next week will scan it

In the 1980s the editor was Norman Cunion former Royal Signals RQMS at 1 Div Verden-Aller late 60s and also knew in advertising manager Carol married to Tom we served together 30 Fd Sqn (Dirty Thirty) late 1970s

Military personal stationed in West Berlin (UK, US, French) patroled in East Berlin to demonstrate their right to do so (flag tours) and for some reconnaissance reasons on a daily base. Using vehicles “for official use only”.

Beside the official business soldiers had the possibility to visit East Berlin off duty for sightseeing or shopping.

I saw recently a report in tv about East Berlin when large festivals took place with lot of young people from all over the GDR and from abroad. In crowds on public places one could see uniformed soldiers from RAF or RMP. To the participants a note was given by the East German authorities not to ask western soldiers for an autograph or for a joint photo. If someone want to do so it should be limited to Soviet soldiers.

Today my question, can somebody remember ever has been ask in East Berlin for an autograph or a photo?

Bit late in responding.  Only just stumbled upon your post.  Anyway, I served in West Berlin in the mid 80s.  I was RMP and travelled into East Berlin quite often, both on patrol and as a 'tourist' in uniform.  I also worked on Charlie on a shift basis.  I've never heard of this before.  We didn't socialise in any way with the East German population.  We weren't allowed to, plus there was always the danger of them getting into trouble with their own authorities.  We certainly never gave out autographs.  Nor did we pose for photos with them. That would have been viewed as some sort of security breach as your signature could have been copied and used for nefarious purposes.  Exactly what I don't know, but we are talking Berlin in the '80s and security was a major issue for Allied troops.  We had very little to do with the Soviets.  My only contact with them was when they travelled through Charlie on a flag tour, when they came over to the west for a parade at the Soviet memorial or when we were travelling down the corridor from Checkpoint Bravo at Dreilindin to Checkpoint Alpha at Helmstedt and when we escorted their guard from the Sandkruge Bridge on Invaliden Strasse to the RMP Police Post at Tiergarten behind the Soviet Memorial (long since demolished).
