I found these on ebay and thought they might be of some use. They show Hitler Youth boys and Wehrmacht soldiers outside the barracks. The boys are attending a Wehrmacht course in November 1940 according to the reverse of the photos.

I've always wanted to go back to places I was stationed, but from some comments I've read on the RAOC board it would be too disapointing, many Bks are in ruins and so many have been demolished.

You're right Jim. I've been back to barracks in Bielefeld and Minden and it seems to take something away from your memories. It's especially deflating when you see them being demolished or changed. I never made it back to PRS at Wilhelmshaven either and having seen all the video, I suspect it's too late now so I'll stick to me memories of them as they were.

And it's not just Germany / BAOR either John, ST Georges BKS in Sutton Coldfield where so many soldiers first saw the Army is now a housing estate.
