After having a bit of a view of old German haunts on Google Earth I came accross Hannager House (sp?) in Oerlinghausen naer Bielefeld. For those of you who wer not in the know, Hannager House was the residence of the 1(BR) Corps Commander back in the day, and was a place I often had to stag on at. The thing is, this was an easy stag, and by easy I mean really, really easy. You sat in a large caravan in his back garden and watched CCTV screens, did the occasional prowler and opened the gate when required. Best of all, it was 24 hours out of camp and didn't involve any of that messing around that a normal guard did (guard mount, blitzing the guard room before hand over etc), and it got me wondering. Including (some) site guards, what were the duties that you were actually glad to do? The ones that took you away from painting, sweeping and the general monotany of in-camp life. *Added at the last moment: I also recall a site guard at a small ammunition depot in a wood on top of a hill near Hameln which involved watching a mountain of porn for a week solid with no visitors whatsoever. That was a pretty nice week off. Hargenhausen was it? Anyway, dammed if I can find that on Google Earth!
