My Father, Major Eric Lines MM RA was part of the liberation of Belsen. He never spoke of the experience so I never got to have a conversation with him about it and his other wartime exploits. We have the citation for the MM which gives some clue as to what he must have gone though at such an early age.
I’m lucky to have newsreel footage of him escorting Herta Bothe which I only found a few months ago.
Thanks Des Lines
