  2. Hi David
    I'm sorry it has taken so long to get back to you but I mislaid my log on details and have been desparately trying to get back in. You very kindly gave me some really useful information regarding my late uncle Sgt Peter Hanberger who was killed in action on 4th May 1943. The information completed the story for me and other family members and I am most grateful to you for this.

    Kind regards
