I got this message this morning.
I was expecting it.
Last year we were given an envelope which held a shoulder strap with the following written on the front.
Sgt Major Günther Kramer was a Messerschmitt pilot shot down over Kent. He was taken as a POW. He was one of five billeted out on Chivers Farm Aldreth near Ely (Cambs).
He gave me his pilots shoulder strap as a souvenir when he returned to Germany, we called him Jack, he had been a school teacher before being called up, he came from Altenburg, he wrote a few letters when he returned home.
I have done some research to try and find any descendants so that we could return these items but without success and wondered if you might be luckier.
I look forward to your reply and if you would like a picture of the shoulder strap I will attach one when we next communicate.
I did reply…
So here is the shoulder strap.
Any information is be more than welcome.
