Follow-up from previous:

My assignment was a plum: sports editor of the Berlin Observer at a time when Berlin Command sports were superb. Eddie Crook won Olympic boxing gold in '60, Herb Carper set the world record for the indoor 60-meter dash, the kids team went to the Little League World Series in '60, and the '60 football Bears demolished all comers, led by Maxie (Baby Hughie) Williams, who went on to play with the Dolphins.

In Berlin '59-'61. Entrained out 16 days before the Wall went up. The commies had to wait until I left, because they knew I would have torn it apart with my bare hands (gg).

Happy to read I'm not alone in believing it was the best duty station in the army and that the time there was a life highlight.

Went back several times...last was '71. Caught without a passport when the wall came down, otherwise I would have joined the festivities then.

Over message limit...will add another.

Hello Michael Kahlbow.
Many thanks for kind offer, have e-mailed you seperately.
Did you know Ken Davies, B Sqn Sgt Major, who was put in house arrest by the GOC. We had travelled to CheckPoint
Charlie in coach when GOC saw us with no No2 Dress Hats on and RMPs stopped us at the Checkpoint We were allowed in to
East side for the nightout, but Ken was taken to his quarters on the return. Our CO in BFPO 30 was not a happy bunny. Any RMPs out there who were on duty that night?.

Help from your members for any photos taken at the 7/6/85 Queen's Birthday Parade on Auf dem Maifeld.
I was a WO2 and had come to Berlin with the Guidon Party of 14/20H(to parade with our B Sqn at Smuts Bks.
The Prine of Wales took the salute with Maj Gen Gordon-Lennox, all Infantry will surely remember him for his strange ideas
Maybe 'Pinky' from Canada can help me. Other members of the party were Dave Wynstanley Alan Wainwright.
Can the site editor assist from the German press side.

Hi to everyone who were stationed at postcode BFPO 45.

I lived on Dickenweg between 1970 to 1975, from a forces family. My Dad worked behind the Olympic Stadium at the BOAR Headquarters and I went to Charlottenburg School and my brother and sister went to Gatow.

Would be great to hear from anyone who was there at the same time, my parents were Ken & Jean Havenhand from Yorkshire.
