I'm 'doing' my family tree and this episode in my late father's life has always been of interest to me. He spent 4 years in Stalag XVIIIa - not a good time in his life. In writing his history I just wanted to 'put the icing on the cake' by giving as many details as possible, hence my search for the bomb group.
Could I ask you to expand a little, I do not understand a couple of the abbreviations - ETO and MTO.
If you have any suggestions as to where I can continue my search I would be grateful - I'm in the UK
Could I ask where you are reading the strategic and tactical operation for that day, is it available on the net?
