Ron MacIsaac My late father served originally with the 2RCHA; then transferred to the Service Corps; and finally to the new Service Battalion. We lived in Hemer from October 1957 until November 1960 when my father was transferred back to CFB Gagetown in New Brunswick. I have really clear memories of my time in Hemer...Mr. Herbert, the principal, Miss Tobin, my teacher, Mr Millitic (sic), the Vice Principal who was reprimanded for batting me across the head after I had, during line-up, tosed some garbage into a garbage can, and lastly a really wonderful teacher...I think his name was Potter (not sure about the name) but he had had polio in his youth and could & did perform on the high rings using his well-muscled arms. I remember a lot also about the town, Iserlohn, Delinghofen, the Forts, etc. A memorable time indeed! March 13, 2019
Robert Kitson Sadly in February 2019 saw the last in the demolition of the original Canadian Barracks. Using a German Press report - now translated into English and various other materials I have made a film which is posted on YouTube. I shall add the link later. If it does not load in this medium then copy and then paste in your browser to search for it. I served with 2nd Battalion The Queen's Regiment and arrived in Werl in late 1970 and stayed until September 1975 and were were the first British Battalion to take over from the Canadians My best wishes Bob Here is the link to the film and you are very welcome to use it if you so wish February 24, 2019

Janice Mann My husband and I are planning a trip to Germany next Fall and will drive to Unna to see where I used to live. Our address was 23a Goethestrasse. It's hard to believe it's been 50 years since I lived there! I see from Google Maps that the old "Bunny Trail" still seems to be there. I also want to try to retrace where my sister and I used to walk to the outdoor pool where we spent so many wonderful days in the summer. October 28, 2017

  1. What wonderful memories!  So strange to come across this website.  What an awesome job done!  Came across school photos of which my sister Debby was in grade 2 and one of which I was in Grade 4. We lived on Stettsteiner Strasse (spelling?) in Hemer from 1957 to 1960.  Left from Winnipeg to Montreal by train then ship (Queen Frederica ? ) to Germany.  Back in November of 60 on RMS Saxonia posted to Camp Gagetown NB.  I will try to locate some of our pictures if possible from my parents collection and pass along.

  2. Great memories was 1SSM Bty 64-69.

  3. Such a great site!!! We sailed from Halifax on the Captain Cook in 1955 and lived in Soest and Hemer, returning via the Queen Frederica in 1957. I was 7 when we arrived in Soest. I too will scavenge my parents’ photos and post them. (RCEME, LAD, WO2 A.G. (Tony) Rose)
