    Hello Ian, thank you for your great website. I am working on a book about the 24Dec44 Mission 760 of the 8th AF, the largest aerial bombing mission in history. I was unaware of the Christmas Eve 1944 V-1 attack on Manchester that you discuss and would like to mention it in my book. Certainly the POW letters are a very interesting story. If you could email me footnote reference information, I would certainly appreciate it.
