Olympic Stadium, Berlin April 1984

Olympic Stadium, Berlin April 1984
The 1936 Olympic Stadium taken from the top of the Glockenturm (Bell Tower). At that time, it was the home ground to Hertha BSC (Ha - Ho - Hey - Hertha Bey - Ess - Tsay!" and they appear to be playing to a packed :)) stadium. We were able to buy tickets to football matches there cheaply through the PT Branch of HQ Berlin Brigade, so a few years later I used to take my son there to do the chant.

In front of the stadium is the Maifeld (Mayfield) which was part of the British occupied part of the Olympic Stadium complex. This was used for polo, football and rugby matches, and for the annual Queen's Birthday Parade.
