Hi Pam,you mention your Dad being on Operation Woodpecker.
I was engaged in that forgotten operation carried out to remove timber from the Harz forest in reparation for the cost of the war.I remember the Northamptonshires.Moved to Berlin and 338 Construction Squadron in late 1947 to help demolish the Zoo Bunker.Wonderful,adventurous times for
19/20 year olds.

Hi all,

I lived in Berlin early 70's, my father was serving with Cheshire Regt at the time. I am trying to find out where we were quartered. I remember sandstrasse and Hettnerweg but would be grateful if anyone could shed any light on the 'patch".

If anyone from the British Infantry Brigade is interested, a section on the Berlin Brigade website by Reinhard Von Browski has been dedicated to the British Forces in Berlin.
Stop by and give it a visit and leave a comment on the guest book for Reinhard, he has worked hard on the site for American Forces and now a section for the British Forces.
