legacyBy the time the last major units of the British Army leave Bielefeld, Gütersloh and Paderborn in 2019, British Forces will have been stationed in Germany for nearly 75 years.

To mark this lengthy period of overseas deployment, HQ BFG is producing a book:

British Forces in Germany – The Lived Experience.

Hundreds of thousands of Forces personnel have experienced life in Germany: not just military personnel, but tens of thousands of civil servants and support staff from within the teaching organisations such as MOD Schools, civilian doctors, dentists and nurses in BFGHS / DDS and engineers and project managers from DIO.

Every one of these people has a tale to tell and we would Like to hear them.


This is a call for you to share your lived experiences.
