    I know a fair bit about the War in Europe during 1939-1945 but mostly about aircraft - i had grandparents who lived during the war (my grandfather was a navy photographer aboard a Royal Navy aircraft carrier) like i said most of my knowledge is about aircraft but if i can be useful to you just let me know


    Cheers

    My father was an RSM during WW2, If I can help ask. I have to say that my knowledge of WW2 is mostly German aircraft but there we are.

    Well, why not?

    I have been 'into' airplanes of WW2 since I were a lad! And in the last 20 or so years that interest has turned to Axis aircraft, mostly German, I guess I'm fascinated by the wide range and variety that the Germans turned out.
