Re:Lt Robert Stricker KIA 1945
I can gather the listing of all of Lt Robert Stricker's missions which would include date of mission, target city, specific target, a/c flown, formation position and crew composition by position on the aircraft. Send me a PM with your email address and I'll begin gathering that info for you.
I also have a set of documents regarding the trial procedures by the Headquarters, United States Forces in Austria, Office of the Judge Advocate, War Crimes Branch, APO 777, U.S. Army. I don't know if these are the documents you are referring to about Franz Blauensteiner but his name is used many times in the transcripts. I cannot share them with you because of a promise I made to the brother of Lt Robert Stricker that I would keep them in confidence until such a time as he released me from the promise. He has not done so as yet. But I will tell you that Blauensteiner was definitely involved. I wish I could share them but until Jerry says its OK, I will not release them.
Send me your email address.
