Hi all, pretty new to the site. Does anybody rercall going to the City Club in Paderborn, in the early/mid seventies. Also did anyone come across, (not physically), Wilma the barmaid who, apparently, did some porn movies?
When 3RTR got to Paders in 79 - oh yes.....Wilma was still there.......oh yes.....she was fecking mad and...............oh yes........................she did tricks 'for the lads' and.......................oh yes, she'd done porn films......and half the garrison!!!!!!! She was as mad as a bucket full of frogs!!!!
City Club is still there & still going strong. there was also a 'Barmaid' called 'Pepsi'. As for Wilma, is that the same one that knocked around in 'Love Story' out in Schloss Neuhause' & give tommy tanks to the lads under the table Good old days
Aaaah the City Club. The only club in town with bouncers on the door to throw the drunkards in.
Many's the Grab a Granny Night I spent in there.
IIRC Hackett wrote The Third World War in 1978. I well remember him describing how the Commies could not break into Paderborn and a bulge developed. A mukker put this down to the presence of all those biological agents in the City Club.
I can remember when on duty in the MRS at Sennelager being called out to attend incidents at the CC. arrived with ambulance, parked up next to the German Krankenwagen, picking the bods up and placing them non to careful into my Amb.
In 1994 I was lucky enough to be an inmate at BMH Rinteln. In the same ward as myself was a young bollshy Para who claimed he was in because he was beaten up by a group in the City Club. Learned from one of the nurses that he had actually been stood on the landing at the top of the stairs and some drunk bird had slammed the big metal entrance door onto him knocking him over the bannister to the floor below. His chute failed to open??????????
aah, many the time upon trying to get to the exit upon the top of the stairs being "snatched" into the Brunehilda's ablutions (which was adjacent to the entrance)to check upon one's suitabilty for procreation amongst a gaggle of damen
I was doing one of the barmaids there, round about 84-85ish. Buy a beer, give her DM 10 receive change for DM 50. Two years, free beer, sex, and a taxi back to Barker, her mate (another barmaid) was being porked by an amoured farmer! Brilliant boozer. Tunes of the day; "Tarzan Boy, Brother Louis, Wild Wild West (played a lot at BATUS aswell)"
Other bars of note, Black and Whites, the George (excellent gyros shop next door, Jami's I think?), the Red House, and a freaky drug riddled place with a mosaic guitar in the dance floor.
If I was to say Janet the Planet, ring any bells?
Edited to include "The Blue Angel", and the brothel up the road from Barker.
Good God man who are you Of course dear Janet worked in the Barker NAAFI with another lass, who was also quite popular Was the gal in the City Club called 'Pepsi' Also there was the daughter of the schnell imbiss wagon that came into camp each night. And the bar you forgot to mention was the 'London Pub' And dare I mention it my first wife worked part time in the George in the upsatairs bar
I left Paderborn in 1982. My daughter was on the way, born in BMH Rinteln. In 1996 I took the family on Le Grand Tour and we went back to Padders.
I was mortified to discover that during the intervening years, some TWAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAT had built an upstairs over the top of a not unattractive typical German city (if you are into that sort of thing).
Arrghhh! The City Club! Scene of my downfall with a fat tart called Doris who gave a dose so bad that I was off the drink for 4 months, the guys thought it was fun having a full time chaueffeur though. I learned that drunk squaddies are not fun to be with and women must really be desperate to be picked up by them. My re-entry into the drinking scene was during CAT 83 and man was I bladdered or what!
A couple of more good watering holes were Onkel Toms Kabin,I played Football for them(Goalkeeper)in the early 80`s Chris Atkins owned the place(last time I saw him was early 90`s he was a photographer in Schlos Neuhaus. Another was the Red House (for a time out of bounds) and you could smell why as soon as you walked through the door but F**k it played the best heavy metal and rock around.
