Cardigan Barracks in Germany?

Discussion in 'Military History and Militaria' started by Tartan_Terrier, Dec 22, 2008.

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. A friend of mine showed me his dad's old photo album from his Army days. It seems that he was part of the Danish Brigade in Germany shortly after the war (1947-ish).

    Some of the photos were fascinating, and gave a clear view of the state that Germany was in duríng the immediate post-war period (lots of destroyed buildings, wrecked tanks, planes, u-boats etc.)

    On one of the photos there is a clear view of the front gate and guardhouse with a sign saying 'Den Danske Brigade, The Danish Bde. Grp., Cardigan Barracks'. What I was wondering is, does anyone here know where that was?

    I have a feeling that it may have been in Kiel (both because of the U-boat photos and because I'm sure I've read something about it before), but my mate's dad died about five years ago, so we can't ask him.

    So, are there any of the old and bold, or indeed any BFG historians who can tell me more?

    Thanks in advance for any help.
