Hint, he was also the designer of BT-SV.
I believe I know that one: is it N.F.Tsyganov?
Yes indeed.... Good well done job Skipper!
Ok , who can name a German soldier monk, born in Danzig and based at the Bourges, France Gestapo prison during the war. This good man helped many prisonners by acting in an exemplary way. There is a French stamp dedicated to this man.
Was it Sgt Major Charles Coward?
nope, He was a German soldier with a German name. You will find him by focussing on Bourges
Here is a hint: the first name is Alfred. If you google a little with the correct words you"ll get it.
Last hint: this German medic was called the Franciscan of Bourges
Well done Kai, this wasn't an easy one. The good man deserves to be known . He died in horrible circumstances in 1976 when his monastry burnt.
It's all yours.
Name the famous Waffen-SS commander who was killed in the 1970´s in France by being burned in his apartment possibly by Molotov cocktails?

Hehehe...you won't find the answer to this one on the internet....
It wasn't Barnes Wallis - here's a clue, it was someone else who flew on the Dams Raid.....
