Have just come back from a business trip to Osnabruck yesterday where I stayed at the lovely little hotel “The Valhalla” which is in the old town of Osnabruck. As I was stationed there in the mid 70s and lived there up until 1998 thought it would be a good idea to brush up some old memories, my god what a shock..!
I drove round all the old camps which are now looked up, but look as if the boys have just jumped out for a beer nice and clean. As I was standing outside Quebec Bks an old German man came over to me and asked if I was looking for the British army, and went on to tell me that they all pulled out just before Xmas 2008.
He told me the brits were badly missed and asked if I knew anyone who was stationed there? I just grinned (a little sadly) and said no, I had just stopped by chance.
Is there anyone out there who was stationed at Osnabruck around the mid 70s? I was with the A&SH mill band and was stationed there from 1975 – 1978 went back to the UK when the regiment was stationed back to Cattrick, and returned as a civilian in 1979. If there is anyone out there would love to here from them
