British Forces in Germany

Legacy Leaflet English Version

The British Forces in Germany (BFG) Legacy Project is beginning and you can be a part of it by sharing your experiences for a new book.

By the time the last units in 20 Armoured Brigade leave Sennelager in 2019, British Forces will have been stationed in Germany for nearly 75 years. To mark this lengthy period of overseas deployment, HQ BFG is producing a high quality glossy coffee table book: ‘British Forces in Germany – The Lived Experience.’

Hundreds of thousands of British Servicemen and women have spent at least some of their active service in Germany, be that as a part of BAOR, UKSC(G) or BFG. In addition are the tens of thousands of civil servants and support staff that have underpinned the community.

We are now looking for civilian stories of British / German relationships formed during this period and where possible photographs or images of items connected to these happenings.

It may have to do with a local German / British Society, or Sporting Club, it may be to do with exercises (Manöver) on the Hannovarian Plain, or it may just be a pleasant social meeting; after all a great number of marriages occurred between British Troops and the local population.

Please send you stories in the first instance to the Legacy Project Officer at the following email address: bfg-hq-legacyproject-ogpmailbox@mod.uk or by post to Legacy and Projects Officer, HQ BFG, Catterick Kaserne, Detmolder Str 440, 33605 Bielefeld.
