Am I the only one here who has never lived in Aachener Str MG ?
I felt pity for some, posted in, families when I was in Woolwich. While in BAOR they'd purchased a schrank and other items of the comparatively massive German furniture. The UK quarters were so dinky the stuff just wouldn't fit in.
I think most of the girls put up with the inconvenience of Army life, (when their men were away ?), because, 1. They usually had kids to take care of, which took up most of their time. 2. The standard of living in BAOR was much higher than in UK and 3. The girls were part of a little community and were surrounded by women in the same circumstances as themselves and they had the support of their friends.
Yes, cartav, they were special.
They were that and still with me after 48 years!! I didn't live in Aachenerstrasse either but, I did live in Friedrichsdorferstrasse, Avenwedde Bahnhof. (Try saying that to a taxi driver after a night out.

Brat / Curry / Bock wurst were all the same to me. 79 Railway in the early 80's lived in Block 14 York Drive in the JHQ. The fast food of choice was half a spit roasted chicken from a german civilian club called The Oawza (probably not the correct spelling) just off of Queens Avenue, followed by several cans of beer in the 68 Sqn bar (446 club ?)
