    Default Route Map Karlsruhe 24/25 April 1944

    Hi,
    can anyone help with a map showing the route Bomber Command would have taken on operations to Karlsruhe 24/25 April 1944.

    In particular from Holme on Spalding Moor (4 Group).


    Regards,
    Mike

    There is a route map in the night raid report which I can e-mail to you if that is any use to you. If not, I can send you the route co-ordinates shown on some of the loss cards from the raid.

    Regards
