121st General hospital Bremmerhaven

Tue Dec 15, 2009 14:10

Hi all,

I am trying to find the actual location for the 121st General Hospital in Bremmerhaven.

My Aunt T/5 Dorothy Batt Wac 17th Major port was married (I believe) in the 121st Chapel presumably of the Hospital in November of 1946

Any information will be gratefully received

many thanks in advance

Trevor

In my research about the 29ID which was stationed in Grohn Barracks near Bremen in late 1945, I have found out that the 121st General Hospital was stationed in the "Lesum Barracks" (now called: gemeinnützige Anstalten FRIEDEHORST)and the St Joseph Hospital in Bremen

Sorry Johan,

I realised last night after I had sent the reply that infact the map is for Bremen and not bremerhaven :x

http://www.forum-der-wehrmacht.de/threa ... tid=138236

After doing a search on "Lesum Barracks" I hit on the site above, its in German (not a language I understand) and thought I had scored a direct hit

I shall pause and digest the info further.

Thanks

Trevor

The chapel where the wedding took place in the fall of 1946 would have been located in the former German Marine Hospital in Bremerhaven (Marine Lazarett).

The buildings of this hospital were located in the

Dr.-Franz-Mertens-Straße in Wesermünde (Lehe), a suburb of Bremerhaven.

The street still exists, a Google Maps search will show you
