I have been researching a Danish-Canadian pilot, who became PoW (Stalag Luft III, Milag/Malag N). On 2 May 1945 he and other PoWs are liberated by a British Army (Armoured) unit in the German town of Trenthorst south of Lubeck.

Time and place generally suggests Montgomery's 11th Division, 2nd Army, but I have been wondering if it is possible to identify the unit.

I know that this is to bring air war to the ground, but would anyone have an idea how to approach this. Any good forums, titles etc.?
