|Subject: Former Wehrmacht Kaserne Roxelerstr Münster Oxford Barracks 8/1/2013, 00:02|| |
I am writing to you regarding the former Wehrmacht Kaserne, Roxelerstr, Gievenbeck, now Oxford Barracks Münster, which was used as a Flakartillerie-Kaserne (anti-aircraft artillery) for the Luftwaffe and as Stabsquartier (headquarters) for the Ersatzstab (replacement Unit) of the VI. Armeekorps.
My request is concerned with a specific wall painting, which was placed most probably in the officers' mess south of the barracks on the other side of Roxelerstr or the mess hall inside the barracks.
I would like to find out, if the wall painting (which shows a scene from Goethe's Faust/Vor dem Tor/Soldaten: "Burgen mit hohen Zinnen") is still to be seen in the barracks and was not overpainted after the war.
I would be very grateful, if you could help me with my request.
Many thanks in advance for your help and support in this personal matter.
With best wishes for 2013.

there are a number of contributors to this site who are familiar with the Munster area so you might get an answer to your question (unfortunately I was based on the Loddemheide complex on the other side of he City and rarely visited Oxford Barracks
I will send you a pm on a possible alternate approachi

I worked in Oxford Barracks, (lived in quarters Roxel ) for 2 years in 1978, I was not aware of the existance of the wall painting.
