Hi Wally 5315, and welcome to the Site. I was stationed in Churchill Bks from Apr 64 - Feb 69, it was an excellent posting. This short video may be of some interest to you.

My dad, John Young, was in the Royal School of Signals and we were stationed in Lippstadt in about 1972 I think. We lived at 24 (I think) Lessingstrasse. I'd like to go back and visit our street and house and the camp. Is it possible to do that nowadays?

Hi Kyla and welcome to the site. As Steve says Churchill Barracks has now been redesignated Wohnpark Sud and the buildings have been converted to Social Housing, all the ancillary buildings, that is, garages, gun sheds, POL point etc have been removed and replaced by private housing. Lessingstrasse is still standing and is also private housing. Travel to Lippstadt is relatively simple, with regular flights to Hannover or Lippstadt/Paderborn airports. If you click on my YouTube link above you can get an idea of what the Barracks look like now.

Thanks. I'm glad it's still there, I'll certainly have a look when I'm next in Germany. I don't remember anything about the camp, just Lessingstrasse where we lived, our garden and the playground. I've looked at it on You tube and it looks really very nice, much prettier than Blandford Camp where we moved after.

I was about six or seven. My mum had a friend opposite who was Asian called Nina. We would get the bus to school and I sometimes sat with her son.

Other places I know the names of are Bockenforde and Mona See. I remember a visit to Lippstadt park because my youngest brother, Nick, fell in the river and my dad had to jump in and fish him out. Actually I have tons of memories from that period.
