Paul Wheeler I came across this site recently, and saw names I knew. One email came back undelivaerable from Floyd Stanley grade 6 Fort Chambly teacher. He was a real positive influence,that became evident a few years later. Hope I can find his email address to say thanks. December 6, 2017

Janice Mann My husband and I are planning a trip to Germany next Fall and will drive to Unna to see where I used to live. Our address was 23a Goethestrasse. It's hard to believe it's been 50 years since I lived there! I see from Google Maps that the old "Bunny Trail" still seems to be there. I also want to try to retrace where my sister and I used to walk to the outdoor pool where we spent so many wonderful days in the summer. October 29, 2017

Of note: Andre and Gabreille Corneillier (Werl neighbours), Allan Rude (high school bud, Borden 70-73). Also saw an old guestbook comment from Ramona Caines (Buttons Woodfine) whose father, Woody Woodfine, was a close friend and neighbor of my father. August 25, 2017

Thomas Andrews It was quite an interesting time. My memories of the Elementary Schools in both Soest and Fort Chambly were quite remarkable. Not much was heard, because I had two really close friends from that time, both returned to Germany, yet I am still here, after all these years. December 20, 2015

Terry Bolton Arrived in July 1956 from Griesbach Barracks in Edmonton. Sailed on Empress of Britain from Montreal to Liverpool. Father was WO2 Frank Bolton RQMS who worked at the Station Office around the corner form the Highshool. I was in Grade 8. Played baseball in 1956 and 1957. I was also on one of the minor league Hockey Teams. Also have find memories of sitting in the back of a 2 1/2 ton truck that took all of us to the bowling alley at one of the Forts. Unfortunately our 2 year posting was cut short in August 1957 when my father was diagnosed with TB. We were shipped back to Currie Barracks in Calgary because they had a TB sanatorium in Calgary.

  1. What wonderful memories!  So strange to come across this website.  What an awesome job done!  Came across school photos of which my sister Debby was in grade 2 and one of which I was in Grade 4. We lived on Stettsteiner Strasse (spelling?) in Hemer from 1957 to 1960.  Left from Winnipeg to Montreal by train then ship (Queen Frederica ? ) to Germany.  Back in November of 60 on RMS Saxonia posted to Camp Gagetown NB.  I will try to locate some of our pictures if possible from my parents collection and pass along.

  2. Great memories was 1SSM Bty 64-69.

  3. Such a great site!!! We sailed from Halifax on the Captain Cook in 1955 and lived in Soest and Hemer, returning via the Queen Frederica in 1957. I was 7 when we arrived in Soest. I too will scavenge my parents’ photos and post them. (RCEME, LAD, WO2 A.G. (Tony) Rose)
