Great photos Dava. I remember my mum telling me about when Christ Church Claughton on Borough Rd got bombed, the house next door to us fell down. We lived right opposite the school, if you are ever travelling down/up Borough Rd when you get to the school look right/left and you will see a big house on the ridge behind the ??service station?? thats were I lived.

For a Junkers that's been shot down, it looks in good nick ! Bet the RAF were rubbing their hands with glee with that little(?) prize !!

Didn't they have Mirlees engines ??

Notice that the RAF have already painted out the German insignia and replacd it with Roundalls and tail markings, meaning they have been test flying it (so they wont get shot down!!) thumbsup

Pinzgaur,I totally agree with your view concerning the bomb disposal squad,as many of thier jobs was trial and error with the Germans constantly boobytrapping thier payload.Thus making thier job harder.If you have seen or manage to get hold of "Danger UXB" tv series,this is an accurate account of what they were faced with.
