Does anyone know if we inherited any of the barracks here from the Canadians. Any help would be appreciated.

This may already have been answered. If so, please excuse.

The British inherited a host of sites from us Canadians, including the Married Quarters in Hemer and Soest (not sure about the ones in Werl, but I believe so...either that, or they went to the Belgiques aka the Belgians). Unfortunately, the families in PMQs did not inherit much of the Canadian furniture, which was actually well-made and sturdy if a bit...heavy looking. :-)

Forts -- The forts at Deilinghofen went to the British and from there back to the town of Deilinghofen.

The forts in Iserlohn, of which the Canadians had 2 (Fort Qu'Appelle and Fort Beausejour) likewise were transferred to the BAOR and from them to the Bundeswehr. One of the barracks, renamed Winkelmann Kaserne, is now the site of one of the largest flower shows in Germany.

The forts outside Soest, in Bad Sassendorf, Fort Chambly and Fort Henry went to you fellows. Isolated places, too! Took forever for the squaddies to get into town!!
