How many of you lot reckon that you have a little Hans or Helga running about? Or maybe even a William Ulsterman or Proddie Mary knocking about?

Gents,
I met up with my old man yesterday for a few beers and day out in London together.
My dad is getting on now but when he was young, he was a rather handsome chap.
We was chatting about anything and everything, when he confessed to me that he suspected that he had fathered another child whilst he was based in the Fatherland.
I have to admit that I was shocked by this revelation. Not the revelation that a squaddie got some local doris up the spout, but because I grew up believing that my dad had always been committed towards his marriage with my mum.
I asked him if anyone else knew about this, and he told me that he had never told anyone else apart from me.
Oh well... obviously he isn't alone in this.
 
An old friend was hauled up before the base CO at RAF Westerland-Sylt in around 1947 after a German fraulien showed up at the base to claim that said friend had got her up the duff.

Never found out the outcome, but my friend got a right bollocking of the Canadian CO, who hated Krauts.
 
Good question by @Ho2331 , but think on, what old BAOR or NI veteran is going to admit to fathering a sprog, on an open forum like Arrse, where someone somewhere will know who he is, and could do the dirty. Also you have to assume that some Helga or Mary who has brought up their kid, single handedly, is trawling the internet looking for the long lost father, which could cause massive fallout with a marriage, family culpability, and financially, no sensible ex soldier is going to admit it on Arrse, not even in jest.

Wasn't fraternisation officially still a big no no back in 1947?
 
Fair enough. What about Hans/Helga?
Well that's the burning question isn't it? I'm wondering whether the old man has told me this, as a prelude to introducing me to a long lost brother or sister!

Edited to add: Mate, genuinely; this isn't me posting about how shocked I am that a brit squaddie had a bit of horizontal exercise off of camp, but like I said; what has shocked me is that my dad absolutely worshipped my mum.

Suspicion can be a terrible thing. My darling spouse knows (some of) my background and was highly suspicious when a 45 quid debit came out of the account to the CSA. Thankfully did not panic and stab me with a kitchen knife, but phoned the bank. Much relieved to find that it was the annual membership for the Countryside Alliance. Bullet successfully dodged.
 
Apocryphal story:- A local german lass turns up with her lawyer at the barracks, claiming that a soldier by the name of jones has got her up the duff. The RSM is ordered to parade the regiment, the RSM then askes the lass if she can point him out, she cannot, and so the RSM shouts the command" Jones one step forward march" 75 men step forward............... It was the welsh fusiliers.

I'm saying feck all.
I've probably got a small tribe littered about the place from Wales to Norfolk to Yorkshire to Germany.

That said, I was always careful. Never used the same details....

At least it wasn't for a subscription to pornhub mate!
