No, this is not science fiction or some architect training material - this is what stands on the front part of Roberts Bks today!!!No 

Archie.

Looks like the drawings kept rolling up when they were making the shuttering.

Hi all,
A great site of the shiny 7. Wish there were others
Looking at the large aerial photo with locations in yellow; in my days 1951-1955 it was the home of 37 and 38 Army Engineer Regiments.
37 AER was in the barracks marked as 25 Corps ER; and 12 Sqn was block 12, my block 40 Field Sqn. 39 Sqn was our 41 Field park Sqn
The NAAFI block was our cook house and the YMCA was our NAAFI [in addition to the one in town]
I don't remember the gym
37 AER arrived in Osnabruck late 1950 and most left for Cyprus in 1955

Days to remember
Happy Sapper

If you're ex 37, I know a Roy Livermore who is ex 37 RHQ from 53 to 55

I have a Facebook group to help him try to find friends from that time if you or any ex 37 friends are interested

Hi Mark,

Thanks, I am not on facebook, but if anyone is willing to contact via this site, that would be good

I left Osnabruck September 1952 when I was posted to Movement Control at Longmoor; UK postings accommodation not as good as BAOR plus that temptation to go home as many weekends as possible and the boring train journeys, not so much fun

37 RHQ not sure which block they were in; strange but we had very little to do with anyone outside our squadron of about 150 men

Regards
Happy Sapper

37 RHQ were in block 20, right next to the main gate. 2 ADER/25 Eng Regt also used block 20 as RHQ.

We were just the same, limiting contact to those in the squadron, or those we worked with on joint tasks with other squadrons.

There is also a civilian group on Facebook of Osnabruck Garrison 1945 to 2009. Lots of ex squadies and wives of deceased forces personnel, as well as civilian employees. It's a nice group with loads of photos shared. Might be worth your thinking about Facebook for that.

Hi Mark and all,

For the record:
37 AER comprised HQ in block 20, 40 Field Sqn in block 12, 41 Field Park Sqn in block 10; with 33 and 34 Sqns in either block 16 or 18. Our cookhouse was block 15
Our NAFFI was upstairs block 19, I think the chapel was downstairs block 19.
Sick Rooms were block 44, over in 38 AER territory

Happy Sapper

Block 16 was the Sergeants mess and training wing/cinema

44 was the church. The Nissen hut burnt down, so they built a brick church before I got there in 1980

Medical centre was 34. One of the dentists was a Colonel, who was a right miserable arrogant git. Used to push your lip into your teeth instead of asking you to open wider.

These photos are later. You'll notice that the swimming pool has been filled in

Current view of the Winkelhausen Kaserne, including the giant Kaffee Partners building in the area of Block 3/ REME square.

All the blocks along An Der Netter Heide have been preserved, and had insulation applied to the outside. They are now used by Osnabruck city council, tax office, etc. The old Court Martial block (block 5) is now Osnabruck Police station.

I can only presume that they've kept 25's cookhouse (15) due to a protection order on the cockroaches

Hi Mark and all,

Thanks for current aerial shot
Good to see my old home Block 12 still standing, also our cookhouse, the cockroaches should have eaten everything by now including grease of the floors

Cheers
Happy sapper

Had something like burger and chips one night. Half way through the chips and found a fried cockhroach on the plate :/

Loaded a chest freezer onto a 4 tonner once to take on range camp. The guys dropped it on the wagon and roaches flew out from everywhere

Your photo shows Building 37. 37 was on the extreme north side of the camp. Whilst I was there in 1980, it was used by the Intelligence Corps, but think someone else might have been in there before that
