What will the Germans do with JHQ?

When the British Army left Napier Barracks, Dortmund in the early 90's the camp was left untouched (possible Brit reuse should Commie invade) but the Golf Course remained open and in use.

Fore!

Part of the camp was used by the Bundeswehr when I was there. Shared the NATO blocks and cookhouse with ARRC Sp Bn.
Most of the facilities and buildings were old and decrepit though so will probably be turned into a housing estate like most others (the quarters were better than some I had in Germany which were sold off) some of the camps and quarters were used as refugee accomodation when they were closed in Moenchengladbach and Duss like in many parts of the country

for those who are really interested in ... atm there are several suggestions

either the site will be restored to moorland - might even become a conservation area - or it will become a recreational park - or there might uprise a centre for renewable energy

and you're right the quarters will get flattened

Aladdins Cave will move into the NAAFI Max so they can have a hyper store of everything from bog brushes to pepper spray and postcards to tazers.

Echos will be known as Das Echos but they will keep the fun filled game of asking for your name but being unable to pronounce or spell it, even if it is something simple such as John or Bill.

They are going to close Duss weeze (old Laarbruch) and open Elmpt as a new airport (apparently).
That would actually make sense, its bigger and not such a pain in the tits to get to.

I've had 2 speeding fines driving to Duss Weeze. The irony is I could have flown there on Ryanair for less than I've paid out for my heavy right foot.

Heard that the big house could become a Hospital, its original wartime purpose?
Won't there have to be a war then? Do the Germans/Poles/French know?

Er, why would the Big House have been a hospital when there was a perfectly good one 2km away at Wegberg, complete with airstrip and all?
