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 10D Linden allee Werl Elementary 1959 - 1961 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. Fort Prince of Whales( Barracks) 1 SSM Bty, RCHA 1963 - 1965 January 8, 2013

Jodi Benson My father was stationed in Hemer when he met my mother who was from Hemer. His name is Don Thivierge and her name was Erika Zatska (sp) I would love to connect with someone who may have known them.

John (Billy) Crockford Some of the best memories of childhood were in Soest. Remember all the sports and touring all over Europe. When we returned to Canada my parents posting choice was the flakey left coast and Vancouver from that point sure missed the friends (army brats) I grew up with and never with an exception of a couple bumbed into again. Remember the Keramis (fall fair) Winterburg and other local areas. Remember cycling to the Mohne sea Dam. The brigaderes house called big top if memory serves me correctly.

Brian Coxall Looking for Donna Watson, I believe she has become a writer, if it is the right Watson. Where are you Watson? What can one say after a million years away from high school, couldn't return to Canada, after so many years overseas, traveled 98 countries now, worked in 12 countries, became a teacher, worked almost 30 years overseas and 12 other things just to put myself through school. I had wondered if someone would find a way to do a reunion for our lot, have been back to Soest several times, but didn't see anyone, except for a few German friends. I am Canada now, but I having culture shock to no end, can't even watch TV, but I have one good friend, so I am alright, I am very happy, however I would like to find Donna Watson.
