I provided a link to the McMaster University digital maps in an earlier thread. I discovered this Navigator’s Route chart for Chemnitz, March 5/6, 1945 in the collection. Dad was on this op.


I uploaded the coordinates to Google Maps and they are the same route, confirmed with the Bomber Command night raid reports.


However, I am having difficulty understanding the times marked on the chart. The time marked at the target (2047) seems to be earlier by about one hour, when compared with my father’s bombing time (2153) and also those in other ORBs. If they were local Chemnitz time they would be one hour later.
