My father had an early VW beetle and a number of land rovers so that he and his team could travel around to view the buildings and structures for demolition. My mother was allowed to join him in BAOR, and in one of the photos below, she is knitting what was likely to be baby clothes for my sister who was born in BMH (British Military Hospital), Hannover. I arrived in 1952.
