Bernhard von Tschirschky

Post by ISABELLE » 10 Oct 2021 16:32

I am looking for photographs taken on the Bernhard von Tschirschky in 1941 of the of Guernsey island . On 13 February 1941, 15 young men were captured, arrested and convicted for attempting to reach England. Photographs of their arrest appear to have existed (published on ebay in 2010). One of the young men was my father whose story I am writing. Thank you for your help.

A thousand thanks. I am looking for exactly the photographs of this precise moment: « 6 Seemeilen ssw. Guernsey wurde der Motorsegler "Buhara" von dem Flugsicherungsschiff BERNHARD VON TSCHIRSCHKY aufgebracht. An Bord waren 15 junge Franzosen, überwiegend Piloten und Mechaniker, darunter 8 Schüler der Flugschule St. Brieuc, die in die RAF eintreten wollten. Das Boot war aus dem Hafen St. Cast mit dem Ziel Hafen Print ausgelaufen. Dass Verfahren schwebt beim Kriegsgericht »
Photographs were taken by a sailor but their trace is lost.
