In previous postings I talked about my father's experiences during WW2 with RAF Bomber Command
No 626 Squadron. Below is a photo taken during 626's final major operation of the war: The bombing of the SS Barracks in Obersalzberg, on April 25th, 1945.
Allied intelligence picked up on a rumour that hardcore Nazis were planning a 'last stand' at the barracks. The obvious bit of intelligence was to bomb it.
A force of over 350 Lancaster bombers struck.
