    3 great and very freindly and accesible sources

    1- the Library in the DFTC- loads of books- magazines and articles - and if someonne has ever done a DF project on this, then they should have a copy.

    2-the Military Archives

    3- the German Embassy
    Things fall apart; the centre cannot hold;
    Mere anarchy is loosed upon the world,
    The blood-dimmed tide is loosed, and everywhere***
    The ceremony of innocence is drowned;
    The best lack all conviction, while the worst
    Are full of passionate intensity.

    Paddy Cummins in Waterford has all covered in 'South East Aircrashes in the Emergency' and Donal Mac Carrons book. land fall Ireland, between both of these books, and Guests of the Nation by T Ryle Dwyer, throw in Donal MacCarrons Step Together, its all in there.
    Time for another break I think......

    Many thanks gentlemen for all the pointers . I have Donal Mc Carrons books which are ok but I am looking for more detail . I did get Paddy Cummins's book on the crashes in the "South East" which was very well researched and had some wonderful photos .
    I was hoping that there were members on this forum that may have material or photos that have not been seen before , again many thanks to all who have took a interest in my post .

    Not a bit.Same guy;he just doesn't post here anymore.I know that he has met many of the former Luftwaffe and Allied aircrew who ended up in Ireland.from what I know of his work, he is the standard-setter on the topic.
