    Great site! Thanks for posting.

    As I am an utter nut about the AFB ("After The Battle") comparisons (and have travelled several times using their guides i.e. Lichterfelde barracks, Wolfschanze etc. etc.), this was just the site for me.

    (about pic number two: Then and now battlefield comparison, AND SDKFZs - two of my favourites - be still my beating heart! It does not get any better than that.)

    Hi Ade , thanks for the link , very interesting ! it`s amazing that some of the damaged buildings have survived that sort of impact and vibration , there must have been some rather large cracks in the brickwork to make good !! The photographer must have done a hell of a lot of recce work to identify those locations !
    cheers Al

    Great site, before and after, amazing. When I was in the military I was stationed in Berlin (65-67) at the Lichterfelde Barracks then called Andrews Barracks. We were in the old SS billet not the newer part. Very eerie in the basement. I have some old photos from then and will try to scan them and post. Wish me luck as scanning is new to me, I'll do my best. Some interesting shots. Found these 2 on my computer, first shots I'm posting, let me know if they come through, if they do I'll post some of the older ones.

    Phil, do you mean she worked at Andrews? In that building we had the PX, USO Club, EM Club and the theater. If she was there 1965-67 I might have known her, just in passing tho I'm sure. Have some great memories from my time there, great city and great people

    Would be great to see some more pics of the Lichterfelde Barracks. When I was there, I had lots of pics from an After The Battle magazine and that really gave a good impression about how it looked back then amongst other things when Adolf inspected the troops on the parade ground.

    Interesting that they just encased the two SS guards (statues that is) at the front gate in boxes and poured concrete over them. Imagine if that could be removed and the original statues seen.

    I always got a kick of the fact that two SS men were guarding both the US forces and now the Bundeswehr albeit encased in a somewhat movement hindering substance
