Bayreuth Kasernes

You know, we called it Sub Post, also named Röhrensee Kaserne in Bayreuth. I was able to find out the original name...
 
Hans Schemm Kaserne was the name until the end of the war. Schemm was killed before the war started in a plane crash. I'm sure you know of him, or you can do a search. He was top Nazi in Bayreuth before he died.
 
There was also another Kaserne in Bayreuth by another name, that was demolished in the early 1970's or late 1960's... in Bayreuth, not far from the other one.

Can anyone provide any information on the fire station at Bindlach which probably also served the sup-post in Bayreuth? (Contact webmaster)
