My second daughter was born there in June 1976. Very nearly appeared into the world in the back of a 2CV Very Happy

Attached to 31 Fd Amb in Oxford Barracks, we lived in a hiring In Kosters Kampken. The good lady had decided she wanted to go to a certain Schnell Imbiss in Munster before she went into hospital. Off we went, down to Oxford to check the mail, and then she decided we would walk into Munster.

We visited the Schnell Imbiss, and headed back to the quarter by bus. On the way back she decided to tell me that the labour pains had started - at 3.00 a.m. that morning. Talk about pale rapidly followed by affraid

We ended up getting the downstairs neighbour (a German) to run us into BMH Munster in his 2-door 2CV. Have you ever seen a full term pregnant woman trying to get into the back of one of those things. It took some persuading to get her to see sense and sit in the front!!

I am sure he speeded up by 10kph every time the wife winced or said !OOHHH!

Two of my daughters were SUPPOSED to have been born in BMH Munster .
Our second daughter was too quick and we only just made it to Belfast Baracks MRS in Osnabruck.
Our youngest daughter should have been born there too but
we lived in Soest and over the christmas period (1986)we had rather a lot of snow and as the wife had rather quick labours the Belgian Hospital was a better bet.
Actually what she said was .......my child is NOT having a *%@#&*$ British Military Ambulance as a place of birth on its birth certificate!

I never had the chance to say thank you to the staff at BMH Munster for saving my life during the early 1960's. I was taken there after I developed a major urine infection. I was treated at BMH Munster twice within a year for the same problem, and on the second time I had to be case evacuated by air ambulance back to the UK. And treated at BMH Aldershot and BHM Milbank.

Thanks a lot.

Hello,

I was born in BMH Munster in 1965.

I understand that the hospital no longer exists -- but I assume that the buildings still do.

I will visit Munster in December 2014 (for their Christmas Market) so I would very much like to see the former hospital.

Do you have a street address for the former hospital?

Or could you send me a Google Maps link to the location?

Thanks for your help!

Regards,

My two daughters were born at BMH Munster. The eldest involved a rather desperate drive down on the Autobahn, about a 40km trip from Osnabruck where I was based when she decided to arrive early.

PostSubject: Pics of BMH Munster about 1957   BMH Munster Icon_minitime26/1/2017, 13:52

I have two pics of BMH Munster in my Album -- not very good prints -- but I have scanned them to show you. I was there in the Path Lab for a short while before being sent to BMH Berlin. I had a walk around the Town -- there was cobbled streets and the 'Dom' and an arcade with lots of good camera shops with all wonderful German Cameras on show that we never saw in England --

The long low building is the NAAFI as it says on back of print.

My sister was born in Munster Hospital in 1963, I think. I remember my father buying a Miele Washing machine for the homecoming.
I had two rather complex toe operations there just after Dr NO hit the screen.
I also remember the church there with cages on the wall where they kept a few Anabaptists.

34rd Armoured Brigade responsibility for Stadtkreis Münster ceased 20 Jun 45 on receiving orders for deployment to the Far East, so training commenced until 19 Sep 45, then returning to occupational duties until disbandment 20 Mar 46.

76th Anti-Aircraft Brigade replaced them until disbandment 15 Apr 46 but no major unit moves into Oxford Barracks after 107th (King’s Own) Regiment RAC moved out, then used by minor supporting units.

15 Apr 46 – 4th Armoured Brigade responsibility for Stadtkreis Münster but no major unit moves into Oxford Barracks.

15 Jul 46 – 22nd later 7th Armoured Brigade of 7th Armoured Division but no major unit moves into Oxford Barracks, until 28 Jul 47 when 55th Light Anti-Aircraft Regiment RA moved in until 12 Jan 48 when moving to the United Kingdom and relieved by 22nd Light Anti-Aircraft Regiment RA.

Then go to https://www.baor-locations.org/oxfordbks.aspx.html for later units, it is not possible to update this page at this time.

Hope this helps

Hello Paul
I read your memory
Can I use them in my work?
I am new to this forum.
I made a mistake.
I didn't know the meaning.
But that's how I got your report.
With greetings from Münster
Alfred
