I'm tidying up my records of my father's return to the UK and I'm looking for a little assistance. I've traced him to Ditfurt on 12the April '45 and arriving in England 18th April +/- . It seems that the nearest operational airfield during that time was Hildersheim and from other POW diaries I guess that he would probably have hitched a lift one way or another to that airfield. Can anyone tell me who/what aircraft were operation from there and are you aware as to whether any were specifically flying POW's back to the UK or Brussels? Any other information in this regard would be great. I do have "Footprints on the Sands of Time" but only helps me in providing the treatment once landed in England.
