Denis Lamirande Hello to all gunners!!! March 24, 2013
A. Wayne Carnell I was posted to 3RCHA from 4RCHA in the Fall of 1961 where I served in G Bty and as unit sports officer. I married Marie Ethier a teacher of the bilingual class at Hemer School in November of 1963. We returned to Hemer in the Fall of 2000 on vacation prior to Marie's passing in July of 2001. Upon retirement in 1987 I accepted the position of Chief Administrative Officer with the Town of Oromocto until June 2111. I spend considerable time at my cottage at Davidson Lake at Dumfries, New Brunswick. March 24, 2013
George Oehring What an wonderful gift to us all: thank you! In lahr we always spoke of the Ruhr area as "up north", and otherwise recalled our time there as the "Golden Days", which they surely were and shall remain. I hope some of your many followers can contribute more photos and perhaps fill in a few of the gaps - like BMH Iserlohn where we maintained a fine group of Canadians, and where some of your followers may well have begun their lives. Great work. Thanks again. March 24, 2013
Pierre Marceau Married Annette Marie Luise Friedrich from Iserlohn, in the baker shop of Deilinghofen (the baker was the Mayor)on Friday the 13 of December 1963, just prior to returning to Canada. My wife, our two children and I have been back to the Iserlohn/Hemer/Deilinghofen area almost every year, sometimes twice a year, since the 60s. We saw the transformation of the various Forts into, first, British Garissons, with different names, then, into shopping centres, refugee camps or simply abandonned... March 23, 2013

Burt Green Trails that were once lost in time have now been found through this site. If anyone remembers the rock group "The Tender Touch" I was the lead singer for that band in my off duty hours. We performed in most of the Camps, Teen Hut, Ranch House, etc. Great times, fond memories and wonderful people met during my tour. Sept.20011, "The Tender Touch” got together again to entertain in Moncton, NB. (It was our 44 Year Reunion Gig) I would like to hear from any and all that know of me or The Tender Touch Group. Feel free to contact me. Ruhr Memories is a page in time that opens new doors. Thank You...Burt February 28, 2013
Graham Murphy Hi to Georgia Gariner. We attended same grades , same time.I am sure we must have known oneanother. I gor back to Werl last may. was great to see the pmq's. they are now all occupied by turkish immigrants. Mamma's is now a turkist food place and there is a Turkish cultural centre in the little mall there.Werl itself is still beautiful. Managed to visit the canadian section of the town cemetary. The bases are all overgrown with the old buildings falling down etc. Drove and walked along the tree-lined lane we used to walk between the pmq's and the base back and forth to the cinema. Couldn't find the old belgique theatre we used to go to see movies spoken in belgian and dubbed in english . It was like bringing one's life full circle. Love our years in germany. Fantastic to go back. However, our dollar no longer brings 4 of theirs hhah . feel free to e mail and share some memories February 18, 2013

Bob Stennett A lot of fond memories were brought back when I found this site. Barrack living, many comrades and friends which I have lost contact over the years. Seeing pictures of the old base falling into disrepair is sad. Pictures of the Molly Bar where we gathered for a few brew with friends and also a few scuffles with our neighbours from Fort McLeod (PPCLI) and then laughs and a few drinks when it was all over. Those were the days and I wouldn't change those memories for the world. January 8, 2013
