Good stuff, Steve...recording these histories, personal or more objective, are important IMHO. None of us are getting any younger and it won't be all that long before the last of us who lived in these areas in Germany will be gone...well, yes, it may well be another 20 or 30 years before the last of us is gone, but look how quickly the last 30 years zipped by!

I don't know what it is like in UK, but here in Canada there is a decided lack of knowledge, or care, about the time Canadians spent in Germany. Most Canadians have absolutely no idea there were even any Canadian troops/families there.

I've lost count of the number of times I've mentioned growing up in what was then West Germany, being very careful to include the fact Dad was Canadian Army posted there under NATO, and still get "Oh, you're German? Your English is excellent!" or some similar stupidity....

Germany will always be a unique and interesting memory for those who served/lived there Stephen. A memory that can be shared, but only savored and remembered fondly/badly by those who did a tour or more there. There are those who don't remember it as being a good part of their military career. I count my self as being lucky to be one of those who served there. As to-day for the British and Americans who serve there now it will be a memory much like ours, unique and one to be enjoyed in our distant past. I always look forward to returning to Europe and seeing old friends and the changes made.

Hi Stephen and all
The internet has helped but ‘spade work’ is needed nearly all the photos have been provided by a neighbour who is a former German Air Force SNCO and he has put together the history of ISERLOHN - Flak Kaserne - Bernard Hülsmann Kaserne in photos as he served there many years there so had the choice of hundreds of photos to choose from on Sunday to scan while having a typical German Sunday afternoon with ‘coffee and cake’ have spoken to the Lancashire Fusiliers webmaster who allowed me to use their photos and of course very grateful to this website that I stumbled across while seeking information the British Army in Iserlohn 1945 to 1994 is my second project the first being the history of the Junior Leaders Regiment that I served in 64-66 the camp at Denbury was only open from Sep 55 to Aug 67 being such a short time fairly easy to research if interested please have a look at www.denburyjuniorleaders.com
Regards
Steve Wright study
