    "My father was stationed here from 1954 to 1957 with 30 HAA Regt RA, equipped with 3.7" HAA Guns. The last time I was in Delmenhorst (about 1965), the Barracks had been returned to the Germans and was used by the Luftwaffe as a training centre for the Flak and FlaRak units. I seem to remember pieces of hardware, like a Nike-Hercules, Ju87 etc being place on the grass areas near the fence, and as gate guards."

    At the moment it is in bits, awaiting a new floor being welded in. Keeping the original floor pan was no longer viable as it was getting to be patches on patches.

    More on this later!

    Cheers, Ade.
