|Subject: contemporary witness for german documentary needed! 26/11/2014, 15:14|| |
we are producing a documentary for the NDR (public service broadcasting authorities in northern Germany) about the capitulation of Hamburg in the Second World War. For this purpose, we are looking for a british contemporary witness (or a relative of him/her who knows a lot of old stories), who was in Hamburg/Lüneburger Heide, Germany, during the Second World War. It would be perfect, if the person knows "Captain Thomas Martin Lindsay" as he is a main character in our film.
Maybe you know somebody and could help me with a contact.

Anni. I shouldn't think that there will be many of that age-group remaining. However, good luck with your quest.

There is a wealth of information on Captain Lindsay on the internet - just Google his name, one book is very well documented.
