Helly guys.
I´m living in germany and recently making some family research.

My grandfather was a british soldier who was positioned in Lingen (North west germany) shortly after the war (1947), but I did not know him as his Name was allways a secret of my Grandmother. So I´m searching on my own. First of all it would be helpfull to know which british regiments has been in Lingen in that time.

If anyone has some Info it would be great Surprised

wikpedia tells us: Bramsche wurde nach dem Zweiten Weltkrieg durch polnische Truppen besetzt und war Teil der britischen Besatzungszone. Erst nach dem Abzug der polnischen Truppen im April 1947 konnte der Schulhof und die Lehrerwohnung wieder durch die Gemeinde in Obhut genommen werden.[15] Im Zweiten Weltkrieg fielen 59 Bramscher als Kriegsverpflichtete.

Die Nachkriegszeit war durch die Not der Heimatvertriebenen geprägt. Zu dieser Zeit waren zeitweise zwei Drittel der Bevölkerung Bramsches Flüchtlinge. Nach 1950 entwickelte Bramsche sich von einer landwirtschaftlich geprägten Gemeinde zu einem Ort mit geschäftlicher und handwerklicher Orientierung. Es sind außerdem mehrere große Industriebetriebe und das Kernkraftwerk Lingen hier angesiedelt. Im Jahr 1964 schlossen sich die vier Gemeinden Bramsche-Wesel, Sommeringen-Hüvede, Mundersum und Estringen zur Samtgemeinde Bramsche zusammen. Diese wurde zehn Jahre später zu einem Stadtteil von Lingen (Ems).

Am 1. März 1974 wurde die Gemeinde Bramsche-Wesel in die Stadt Lingen (Ems) eingegliedert.

Welcome TheNic

The 3rd Infantry Division were responsible for Landkreis Lingen on VE Day 8 May 45 to 28 May 45 then 305th Anti-Aircraft Infantry Brigade to 2 Jun 45 then 1st Polish Armoured Division to 15 May 47 when relieved by 7th Armoured Division.

However British Troops were in Lingen after the barracks had been cleared of Prisoners of War and Displaced Persons as follows:

1 Jul 46 – 1st Battalion Royal Leicestershire Regiment
Essex Barracks formerly Walter Fritz Kaserne
11 Nov 47 – United Kingdom

21 Jul 46 – 8th King’s Royal Irish Hussars Royal Armoured Corps
Dover or Balaclava Barracks formerly Scharnhorst Kaserne
13 Feb 48 – United Kingdom

Records show the barracks were side by side so may have them the wrong way round study

Best of luck with your research

Nik,
Sorry this 1928 Photo from Lingen won't help you with your research! I thought it was of interest.

Maybe there are family of yours in the photo?

Regards
Alan
