Thank-you Op for the interesting thread, (its more like the threads from years ago when ATS was good at investigating odd history)
The only part of the story i find hard to believe is the part about a A bomb being found and it being flown out of Germany back to the USA,
it is not the person who flew it out that gets me but the actual thought of an early design of A bomb being safe enough to move around in such a
even the early M Project A -bombs were very sensitive and were not one point safe , it was not until much later that safer designs were brought
(for more details see the new book called `Command and Control by Eric Schlosser.)
so i highly doubt that a bomb was found and that it was flown out. as for the other parts of the story it is quite possible, i myself have heard of
such rumors, even my own father has talked of many places and finds that have not come to the public light. My father was based for a short while in
Sylt an island in Northern Germany, as well as being used for raids into other countries, he says that it was also used as a staging base for about 4
days to ship out sensitive materials and persons that had been found around the Northern part of Germany , specifically he remembers the names :
Neumunster, Scheslwig and Tarp.
the latter he says was a large bunker in a forest just outside the village of Tarp , and that a lot of material came from there.
I have not been able to find any info on the Tarp bunker or any info on Scheslwig other than it was used by the Navy.
but Neumunster as well as having a Luftwaffe base was famous for the Abbey were the Nazis held high ranking prisoners .
its also worth noting that for some reason Neumunster was spared a lot large bombing raids, even though it was a industrial town important to the
Great thread , I really hope more members have some more info to share on this.
