Goodbye Fuchsbau

I've just been reading the local rag (Mönchengladbach) and saw that the Fuchsbau or Chicken in the Woods closed its doors forever yesterday 31.08.19. Basically the costs involved in getting the building up to date ref fire regulations etc would have been simply far too much. The building and grounds have been aquired by a "property development concern", the Fuchsbau will be torn down and new housing built. The old landlord has reached an agreement with the new owners to drive the JCB/whatever to start the demolition.
Thousands of British forces personnel and their families know or knew the Fuchsbau from the 70s onwards. It was a popular place to go and did the best fried chicken for miles around.
Tchuss Fuchsbau, dich kannte ich gut.
 
Our final meal in Germany before posting back to the UK was at the Fuchsbau. Good memories of happier days.
 
I was expecting to find that the plant that made the armoured NBC vehicle had closed.

Nothing to do with 6 wheelers......

Had my school leaving do, there along with around a dozen others. 16 year olds with no academic ability whatsoever. Most of who ended up in either the RAF or Army (funnily enough no Matelots), and the Girls marrying the same.
Great days at JHQ, Blue Pool and the like. Much missed and horrified at the destruction of MQ’s around Munchycrunchie, including Rembrandt Strasser where we lived.
