Hi there,

the radio station on the Ludwigsburg training ground was closed in the mid-1960s.

It was located in the federal state of Schleswig-Holstein - on the Baltic Sea - on the north side of Eckernförde Bay near the town of Eckernförde - in the municipality of Waabs.

Now a new chronicle of the Waabs community is to be created, in which I am also involved.

Therefore I am looking for information of all kinds about this radio station and - if possible - photos.

The beach fishermen in the community told me that when fog suddenly appeared while fishing, when they returned to the beach, they turned to the sound of the diesel generator generating the radio station.

The beach fishermen had their boats in long wood - about 1.5 km from the radio station - on the beach and only brought them to water when it was time for fishing.

I hope for a lot of information
and greetings from Old Germany

Do you have a photo of this radio station? My mother lived in SH after the war and has a photo of something that we can't identify. Thank you!

Hi columbo1,

thank you for your response. Unfortunately I don't have a photo of this radio station, I'm looking for some myself.

But: I have been living in Schleswig-Holstein for over 70 years and I know my way around very well.

If you would send me your mother's photo, I may be able to identify it.

Greetings from Old German

I was in SH in the late 1950s on detachment with the RAF at Putlos near Oldenburg. Next to Putlos which was an old german camp was a Displaced Persons camp. Our work site supported a number of aerials. No confusion with the radio station??

Hi Colombo1 , Hi Es,   (We two know each other don't we!).

I'm no expert on Schleswig- Holstein but have a decent knowlege of the area.

Es and I go back sometime regarding her mum who was Interned at the Displaced Persons Camp, Neustadt, formerly The Kriegsmarine U Boat Training School' at Neustadt in Holstein.

Regarding the photo that Es has submitted. As as far as I know, it is from the  DP Camp, Neustadt. Es's Mum, along with others were free to wander around on the beaches, town and surrounding area, so did the photo originate from another camp?  There were plenty in the Schleswig  area. Eckernforde alone had 20+ DP Camps.  It could be any where along the coastline.  Putlos and Oldenburg are near the sea.

I am nearly 100% sure this building in the photo is part of the Training School at Neustadt.  The tallish pole at one end of the building, is infact, I think an electric cable support pole.

View the map of Neustadt  I have posted. Similar buildings are close to the shore line beyond the building. I have marked the 1951 Map. Additionally, I have also marked  the location of the Sports Field.


The Yellow marked buildings at the bottom left of the map, are in my opinion the same accomodation  buildings.
Note the close coast line. Which is similar to that seen in the photo.

Photo of Major Ruston (Military Cross of 1 Commando Brigade.  He was given the task to 'Sort the Place Out' . And he did!

Es's Mum did not remember the Major Ruston.  After 4-6 weeks sorting the camp. 1. Commando, inc  Major Ruston  were recalled  back to UK. They were to go to the Far East. The war there had not yet finished!

If I remember correctly? Es's Mum, Rosi, was in a Hospital at Eutin, where she was recovering from extensive shrapnel wounds from the Allied planes, which accidently bombed the train she was on along with many other Forced Labour Workers.  On her release, Rosi was placed in requisitioned accomodation to recover. By the time Rosi joined her friends and many others in the DP Camp after the Major and his unit had left for UK.


I would like to add some relative information that not many are aware of?  Along with many other Nationalities from the camp, was a presentation to Major Ruston from the Interned Norwegian Police Group as they were leaving for home.
Major Ruston recipricated with a gift of a bottle of whisky, on the understanding that the empty bottled was retained until he came for it!  Many years later he did what he had promised and was reunited with one and only empty bottle.

Now for the Map marking of Putlos and the nearby amp.  Note: the map X mark I have made at bottom/right indicates  Oldenberg is not far away!

Great work Alan, Thanks so much. I am honored you remember so much about my mum.
When she was alive, she said she lived by the beach after she married my dad. I thought the photo I posted above may have been the house they lived in. Sylvia lived with them also. I will ask Sylvia. She would remember. Mum did tell me that Sergeant Finch arranged for them to live in the house. I thought it may be one and the same. The pole (antenna) did throw me off, so I thought it could be the radio station the other fellow was looking for.
