Bomber down 6.12.1944 southern Austria
 
1 Attachment(s)
Looking for more information re the bomber that crashed on the 6th of december 1944 south of Mahrenberg in Drautal, today's border area Austria/Slowenia. See the attached document.
Obviously six or seven of the bomber crew survived and was caught by the Germans.

Thanks Hans K
