PostSubject: Life in BAOR   Life in BAOR Icon_minitime1/3/2020, 22:03

Can anyone point me in the right direction for info/memories about the early BAOR? Thinking of Barrack life, food in post-war FRG, recreation and sport, meeting locals , an Officers life, general non-exercise stuff.

Thanks in advance!

Take a look in Hansard using key words:
British Army of the Rhine, Berlin, Minden, Sennelager, Iserlohn, Muenster, Soltau, Hohne,
or
look here   https://www.paderborner-konversion.de/briten-westfalen/virtueller-rundgang
or contact (Dr).  bettina-blum@web.de

and glance at the "Red Hackle" Regimental Magazines published by the Black Watch during their times in Germany.

Not all beer and skittles - everyone had a strict special-to-arm training regime and a role to fill, an exhausting competitive sport and
challenging adventure training pursuits, as well as a wide range of duties: Berlin blockade, Border Guards, Site Guards, as well as convoy and escort runs (rail and road). Jocks also managed some Highland Games.

Interested to see your thesis when complete?
