I crossed channel New Years Day 1949 through Hook, Hanover to 94th Obs Regt RA at Luneburg The Greys were there then, the 7th HUssars took over from them later, and were certainly there in 1950 as I left in March 1950 The Black Boar was certainly at the front of barracks then. The Piper of the Greys (A Huge Guy and a worry to the NCO's doing YMCA duty) on New Years eve 1950 led a huge "Pied Piper of Hamlin" crowd of Germans round Luneberg , dressed Full Fig he had them spellbound. All the Tunes of Glory I thought that 94th barracks were then Sharnhorst before renaming Any 94ths of that era still above ground ?

Welcome ralark2008.

We hope you enjoy your visits to the Forum and the main site.

Any details you can give on your time in BAOR, such as Regiments, dates, barracks, etc. will be much appreciated.

Can you recall the correct title of 94 before it became 94 Locating?

94 is shown as being in Bristol Barracks (renamed Worcester Barracks around the time 94 were in station), Luneberg, in 1949. do you have any idea how long they were actually there? The Barracks were renamed Scharnhorst Kaserne when handed back to the Germans in 1958.

They show up again in Yeovil Barracks, then Dennis Barracks, in Munsterlager between 1952 and 1956 before moving to Celle. Another source shows them as being in Munsterlager from 1951. Yet another source gives them as moving to Hildesheim in 1955, possibly just one Battery.

The 7th Hussars are shown as being in Alma Barracks, Luneberg, around 1951, moving to Fallingbostel in October of that year.

The Royal Scots Greys are shown as being in Wyvern Barracks, Luneberg, between 1946 and 1952, with a source giving their replacement as the 8th Kings Royal Irish Hussars in 1952.

Paul.

My father, Jack Martin from Chudleigh, Devon served with RAOC in 1947 and was posted to the following units: 11 Primary Training Centre; 24/25 Company; 10 Company; 54 Reinforcement Holding Unit; 207 Laundry Company; No. 1 Laundry Company; 31 Static Laundry; Laundry Platoon, Minden; HQ Luebbecke Sub Area Platoon; 15th and 18th Battalion. Discharged in June 1959. Served with BAOR from 17.01.48 to 15.01.51. Sadly, he passed away 20 years ago just before his 60th birthday. I am writing his story for our family. I don't know if the above will mean anything to anyone on this website but all contributions will be greatly received

I live in Uelzen and work for a tour operator in Lüneburg.When I speak to some of our older customers they all have fond memories of the british army stationed there after the war.Food was short then but the army bakery always had a bit of surpluss for the locals.they also remember the soldiers marching to church parade on sundays.to the tune of the pipes.The Scharnhorst kaserne is now a part of Lüneburg university.One camp is still used by the german army but the rest are all closed downnot only in Britain are defence cuts hitting hard

PostSubject: Globe Lüneburg   Luneberg 1949-50 Icon_minitime14/3/2021, 20:47

Army Kinema Corporation (AKC came before SSVC)  ran Globe Cinemas (built to War Office specifications and from Garrison funding by Staatliche Bau Ämter) the length and breadth of BAOR.  Generally Globe Cinemas were set inside the wire on Barracks in use by major units.  Some were close to fence lines so that a gate could be opened to let Married Quarter customers into the Cinema without adding to the workload at the Main Gate - in those bad old 1950s not everyone had a car!  Lüneburg was an exception  pressure from the civilian authorities had the Garrison Globe Cinema/Theatre built outside the wire.  What a Face  Shocked   A local from the town, Christopher Scharnhop, is researching why his grandfather forced this situation, as well as trying to discover as much of the history of the Globe Lüneburg as possible.  Apart from answering on this Site, the grandson will accept e-mails and photographs (and arrange to receive memorabilia) at his own email address (he is a retired lawyer) - scharnhop(at)Kanzlei-scharnhop.de .
cheers
Elsewhere on the bfg-locations site the history of the former Globe at Oldenburg  (being reincarnated with support from John Goodyear of Birmingham Uni) is also being researched - although not a joint project there is mutual interest.
