    Default Is there a DDR section

    Hi,

    I was about to show photos I took during my time on patrol on the Inner German Border in the mid 80's however could not find a part of the forum where these would fit. Can anyone suggest where these would best be shown.

    Many thanks

    Hi Robin, we don't have one as yet, but it is something I am thinking about.

    Place your thread here and I can always move it in the future.

    Thanks and I look forwards to seeing the pics.

    Cheers, Ade.

    Nice one However I think if I took that in 1981 they would have had something to say

    Oh yes. I was in DDR with my school in '82 or something. One of my class mates lost his passport being drunk on the train back. They held him and our class teacher at the customs station for 8 days. They played a lot of chess with the border guards.

    Yes, I think a DDR section would be of benefit and would balance out alongside the Bundeswehr section, I have some interesting photos of East German frontier guards when I too toured the lesser known "Inner German Frontier" which ran from the Baltic to the Czech border, slightly bigger than the Berlin Wall ! We even had a U.K. run border agency there...the "BFS" (the British Frontier Service).
    Prost ! Steve.
