A poster campaign has launched in Germany aimed at tracking down the last surviving Nazi war criminals and bringing them to justice.
 
The Simon Wiesenthal Centre estimates there to be 60 people alive in Germany fit to stand trial.
 
Lets hope they get to them before it is too late.

I was "called-up", as a 19 year old, on the 1st of Oct 1942 and was one of 5 serving brothers, one of whom, Jack, was in RAF Bomber Command and was killed on March 16th 1945.

I served as a Driver/Op (Wireless Operator) with the 49th Light Anti Aircraft Rgt. (78 Div) from Apr 1943 to Dec 1944 (North Africa, Sicily, Italy, Egypt). The Regiment was disbanded in Dec 1944 and I was retrained (in Italy) by the Royal Armoured Corps.

 

Finally, I served as Loader/Op with the 4th Queen's Own Hussars (6th Armd.,78th & 56 Div) from Mar 1945 to Dec 1946 (Italy, Austria, Germany) finishing up as Tech Cpl. for "A" Sqdrn.  I was "De-mobbed" in Apr 1947

Saw this on Ceefax last night; only 2 out of the top 10 most wanted are under 90.

I wish them every success

One of the most satisfying periods of my military service was in Austria immediately after the war ending in Europe.

We were actively hunting down known war criminals as this entry in the Rgtl Diary shows:

9/6/1945
SS Obersturmfuhrer der Kriminal Polizei Karl Peer arrested.
10/6/1945
Acting on information a party of 2 Officers and 6 ORs arrested 5 members of the SS including the Deputy Gauleiter of Carinthia, Freiderich Thimel, in a hut at 5686. The SS men carried arms but offered no resistance. A search produced a Solbuch in the name of Hauptsturmfuhrerer Fredrich Ahrens. Becker, Dahl and Burdorf admitted their identity but Steuer said he was only a Cpl in the Army. His Soldbuch was found later and he admitted his identity. Equally divided among the packs was the sum of approx 1.5 million Lire which was alleged by Steuer to be his Regtl funds. 1,400,216 Lire paid into the appropriate bank in VILLACH on order of the Property Control Office. Names of captured personnel:- SS Standartenfuhrer Frederich Thimel, Obersturmfuhrer der Waffen SS Freiderich Steuer, Oberscherfuhrer Ernst Dahl, Oberscherfuhrer Albert Burdorf, Unterscherfuhrer Albert Becker
