I loved Berlin so much , I went back to live there when I got Divorced. I worked at RAF GATOW and in the Cinema. Above the Cinema was a private Club for NAAFI/ Cinema employees, it sold the cheapest Beer in the DIVIDED CITY. I had a few beers there many times then staggered down to the IRISH PUB!
I Loved the TRAIN and got more BTDs than Terry Mundin or Bernie Bush Ha! Ha!
I've still got some BAFFs, so I'm going back to spend em!
ICH BIN EIN BERLINER!

After the allies left in 1994 the Edinburgh House at Theodor Heuss Platz was turned into a student hostel for students from foreign countries. This was initiated by Helmut Kohl und François Mitterand.

Hi

I was stationed at 229 Signal Squadron Between 1962 and 1964 we were in the old athletes quarters in the British HQ.

Does anyone remember operation ROCKING HORSE it was the emergency exercise where everyone had to be in there designated locations within fifteen minutes. I remember speeding off down Heer Strasse through heavy traffic in our Unimog radio truck.

The night life was teriffic it never closed. I loved the train operator duty between Berlin and Helmstead.

I was a military brat whose father was stationed in Berlin from about 1960-1963. Military family housing was "am Hegewinkle" and it was a great place to be a kid. Did kindergarten and 1st grade at the Berlin American School.

The Berlin Wall went up when we were living there and of course at age 5 I had no idea how dangerous the situation was. Fond memories of Onkel Tom's Hutte, the U-Bahn, and Ka De We! Does anyone remember the huge outdoor swimming pool complex called the British Pools?
