HISTORY of Flint Kaserne
 
(Source: The "Kaserne" at Bad Tölz, Third US Army Headquarters, probably published in 1946)
 
The kaserne at Bad Tölz was designated as the Headquarters for Third US Army in May 1945. On 23 May 1945, Third US Army Headquarters (Fwd) moved from Regensburg, where it had been located on VE-Day, to the kaserne. The new headquarters area consisted of approximately 40 acres that formerly had been occupied by a German "Junkerschule."

This installation was considered to be one of the finest military posts in Bavaria.The main building consisted of some 900 rooms built in the shape of a quadrangle building, and it afforded such facilities as offices, barracks, messes, chapel, theater and post exchange. Other facilities within the headquarters area included laundry, gymnasium, indoor swimming pool, athletic field, stable, riding hall, and motor pool.

Third Army headquarters was located at Bad Tölz until April 1946, when it moved to Heidelberg.

During Third Army's stay in Bad Tölz it was assigned the general mission of occupying the German Land (state) of Bavaria.


 
(Source: The Grape Leaf, sometime in 1953)
Flint Kaserne, Bad Toelz was the site of Headquarters, 1st (Inf) Division, from September 1946 until January 1951.

The kaserne was occupied by Headquarters, Special Troops, and 3rd Bn, 169th Inf Regt, of the 43rd Division, from October 1951 until the summer of 1952 when the regiment moved to Nuernberg.

 
HISTORY of Prinz Heinrich Kaserne
 
(Source: Email from Bill Newman)
The 631st Tank Destroyer Battalion moved into the Prinz Heinrich Kaserne within days after the end of WWII in May 1945. On no website about the kaserne do I find any mention of our being there.

Prinz Heinrich Kaserne, Lenggries. A great website hosted by the German Luftwaffe, in German. The Kaserne is scheduled for closure in 2003. A Farewell Tatoo will be held on 28/29 June, 2002 at Lenggries. Many wonderful photos from the various periods of the Kaserne's history. The American period (1945 - 1970) is covered on Page 5 of the photo series.
