I was wondering if anyony remembers my dad he was posted to a barracks in minden, germany in the 80's near where we lived at Vorlander Strasse in the block of flats and my dad was in charge of them, he became Staff Sargent and his name is Harry Wilkie also know as Henry Wilkie and married to my mum elizabeth wilkie (also known as betty) he was with r.e.m.e and then if i remember right moved to 7th Arm.
I am his youngest son Andrew Wilkie and i remember we all use to have parties in the cellars underneath the flats and also at New years inside the flat and one year my dad burnt himself while lightning a firework (a rocket i believe) because he would set them off from the balcony as we lived on the very top floor and to the left.
I believe on the tv this one new year we was watching torville and dean doing ice skating. People also may remember be being dressed as a spitfire for halloween. lol
I am also trying to find my best friend Jason who's dad was also in the army but different part from my dad but lived in same flats as us on the ground floor. I went to suffolk primary school and I can't remember the females i was friends with then for the life of me lol, we use to silly things like hand stands on the playground etc and against the flat walls lol.
I think some of you will remember me being friends also with a girl called sara(h) then too and her sister and me buying raw carrots, and down the road was the swimming pool (you had to walk past that smartie tube thing) and by the canal was the ice cream parlour.
No i am not looking for sara(h) i found her and she aint a nice person anymore she is pure evil and hangs around with evil people.
I am more interested in finding out who remembers my dad and if you can share memories with me and also finding my friend jason as i cannot remember his surname.
P.S I was born in Hannover , Germany 1981 and now 38 yrs old. I also want to know if we can all share our memories of minden, as i remember having good times there.
