Here is a short version my father made before his passing and I sent to the site for the bomber squadron my dad served in during WW2 and sent in several pictures my dad left me, his mission diary etc.. My father did have the longer record reported at the end as a historical record, but have not been able to find it. The short version which is on the link below I still have, but long version which recorded the long and arduous 600k zig zagging march from Luftstalag 9 originally to get away from the russians.. Is gone.. Had it on a floppy at the time and it went bad and must be online somewhere, just never able to find.
