Fond memories or good riddance?
Well why not both.

They`ve got a final open day tomorrow afternoon 30th June where you can go along & indulge your fond memories for free.

Next Friday the 6th July, they`re exercising the freedom of Celle for the last time with a farewell parade through town, where you can go along, line the route & exercise your right to shout good riddance !

Really? Hobart Bks, Detmold closed years ago. ISTR industrial unrest from the LEC complaining that'd we'd overstayed our welcome. Then the Wall came down and the same mob demanded that we stay open to protect their jobs.

Oh please don`t bring back awfull memories of that depressing place, the hakedahl housing estate of tower blocks on the hill opposite the camp gate has got to qualify as a good riddence without question.
Spent three very happy years in Detmold as a singly, followed by several more as a pad. The wife-swapping parties on the Hak are the stuff of legend. I guess you got the toaster...........

Fond memories of Trenchard brks, locked up for 8 hours after mistaken identity, Celle was great though.

it had a bigger and better Pads NAAFI than Hameln though :)
Regularly inaccessible throughout the winter due to high altitude, steep hills snow & ice. At times it was like ice station zebra. Even the car park was a hill. Spend too long there & if the weather closed in, even international rescue would struggle to get you & your car out.

Totally godforsaken dreary place as far as I´m concerned, even the canteen food & drink was utterly atrocious. Just as well bfg does`nt need to concern itself about the local health & hygiene inspectors dropping in for a look see.
