More information about Guttels

Gustav Venema, the farmer at Guttels. In March 1945 was serving with the Luftwaffe at Detmold as the commander of an aircraft observation post. Guttels was where Colonel Edlmann recorded Lieutenant Peter Conder Royal Signals, Lieutenant John Cripps King’s Royal Rifle Corps, Lieutenant Ralph Pilcher Welsh Guards, Lieutenant Basil Rought-Rought Royal Norfolk Regiment and Henry Morgan sheltering after their escape on day 1 of the march.

Thank you Irving Dunn for the information and these two photographs of his father-in-law Herr Venema.
