I only write what my father has told me. I have no reason to invent anything.
May be that I misunderstand some parts, but it all get more clear as you help me out.
As for Bordeaux, it was the pens that they defended as you point out. He did mention that they never saw the inside of them. I was also surprised that the germans where there at that late date.
I have absolutely no reason to belive my father would lie about this. He also have photographs of him in France after being vergatted.
As for the Lancasters, I am told they had 16 rings on their gun, one for each confirmed hit. I will ask him again about the Goebbles episode.
I have never taken that much interest in WWII. I devulge my time with much earlier wars. I am only here to futher my knowledge about my father and grand fathers war history. I am happy for all help given.
Anyway I have composed a nice letter to Kam, I hope he will shed more light on the unit, their composition, activity and fate.
