    This is the third attempt to post this "When and Where"... I hope for the best. The things that you have to guess are: Which Army, the name of the town they attacked and When (day and month are OK)

    Those are Canadian soldiers from Lord Lovat's No.4 Commando after the Dieppe Raid of 19 August 1942.

    You really made this easy by mentioning the target was a specific town...

    Yes, you got it, wingsofwrath! You're probablt right when you said that i made it easy by asking "the name of the town that they attacked", but since me and the computer aren't good friend and i had a lot of troubles in uploading the picture, i didn't pay much attention to what i wrote... Sorry, is gonna be best the next post (I hope so...)
    Anyway here we have the original caption of the picture :
    Disaster at Dieppe. Canadian survivors of an ill-planned attack on Dieppe return to Britain, August 1942. They lost half of their comrades. The raid was an ill-conceived rehearsal for D-day two years later.
    Best regards.

    My bet is Air Raid Precautions Trainees, carrying "Incendiary snuffers".

    Theses guys were (somehow!!) supposed to place the dome over an incendiary to starve it of oxygen, and then retreat to whatever air raid shelter was available to assist with marshalling the civilians.

    I've only seen written descriptions of the snuffer, but the image posted tends to suggest it as an at least logical explanation.

    Talking Re: Where and when is it?

    Hi rudeerude, they aren't members of the candle brigade, giant candles snuffers...

    Uryaell, you've made a neat direct hit! You gave the right explanation about these snuffers... I'll settle for this answer, even whitout When and Where... Probably, like rudeerude suggested, you needed some more clues... Anyway, here i'm giving to you the original caption.

    Anyone know the burn / injury radius of a German incendiary bomb at the time?

    It appears to be only two or three feet (60-90cm) at most if those poles keep the workers safe.

    I don't have an idea about the danger radius of a German incendiary bomb of the WWII, but i would never try do it... The first time i've seen this picture, it seems some kind of joke to me. I thought they were the forerunners of modern pizza runners...
    I don't know if they really had the chance to "snuff" some bombs and, most of all, if they lived to tell the tale...

    I believe the whole idea came out of desperation, in any case - after all, how else can you extinguish something that reignites spontaneously at room temperature after the water you've been using to quench it evaporates?

    A German incendiary at the time of the picture had an initial det-radius of about one meter in the first 2 or 3 mins after detonation.

    My saying the men were part of ARP automatically made them either UK, Australian, or New Zealanders, as I don't think Canadians employed the term Air Raid Precautions. And Australian or NZ ARP volunteers would not have been in training on an aircraft hard-standing as the men in the picture are, which makes the men British.

    Which meant that When was the only part of the Q remaining, and that was self-explanatory, because ARP did Not begin Incendiary Training until late May of 1939, iIrc. Thus, the pic had to be between May of 1939 and May of 1940: completely self-explanatory.

    Hence my reply as it was written.

    I'll post a conundrum very soon.

    Kind and Respectful Regards my friends, Uyraell.

    Thumbs up Re: Where and when is it?

    The afficionados and cognoscenti among you will have little difficulty with this conundrum.

    The pic makes both unit and equipment obvious , as is the purpose of the unit.
    The interesting part is if anyone recalls the name of the vessel, and what it was doing?

    So, the Win = What vessel, What unit, upon what occasion, in what Timeframe? (Year will do, month would be better.) I Apologise if the pics have been seen before.

    Kind and Respectful Regards my friends, Uyraell.

    All the above pictures relate directly to the so-called "Operation LUSTY" (from LUftwaffe Secret TechnologY) an effort run by the U.S. Army Air Forces Intelligence Service to capture as much of the new German aircraft as possible before the Russians, making this a homologue to the wider publicized "Operation Paperclip".

    The ship is the British escort carrier HMS Reaper (D82) of the "Bogue" class, built upon a C3 fighter hull and laid down on 5 June 1943 at Tacoma, Washington.

    A complete list of the thirty-four aircraft bought to the US for testing at the Freeman Field in Indiana is not available, but the "loot" comprised at least eight Me 262 of various types, One Arado 232, four Arado Ar 234, two Dornier 335 "Pfeil", two Me 163 rocket planes, two Bachem Ba 349 "Natter", one Me 410 A-3, one Focke-Wulf Ta 152, one Blohm & Voss BV 155 (V2), three Heinkel He 162, two Heinkel He 219 and possibly one Heinkel He 177A-7. Also aboard were an unnamed number of V1 and V2 rockets as well as various aircraft components, engines, radar equipment, plans, etc. summing over 16,280 items (6,200 tons) of equipment.

    The time frame for the whole peration was from October 23 1944 to the 15th of December 1945, although the naval part ("Operation Sea Horse") only took from July 20 to July 28 1945.


    LATER EDIT:

    Finally, after some digging, I found a copy of the original cargo manifest which lists 40 rather than 34 airframes: "Ten Me 262, Five Fw 190F, Four FW 190D, One Ta 152H, Four Ar 234B, Three He 219, Three Bf 109, Two Do 335, Two Bu 181, One Doblhoff WNF 342 jet powered helicopter, two Fi 282 helicopters, One Ju 88G, one Ju 388, one Bf 108 and one American P51."

    My own list had been compiled through various sources and by examining the photographic evidence, so we can now discount what I assumed was a " Blohm & Voss BV 155" -visible in the first picture, on the upper left, but more likely a partially dismantled Ar 234- I initially assumed one was present aboard because the sole extant example of this type is in the US, but further investigation proved that said aircraft was in the UK at the time of "Operation Seahorse" ; "one Me 410 A-3 night fighter", also visible in the same picture, second from the right, which is actually the Ju88 G6 mentioned above (that damn shrink wrap makes it hard to discern true shape); " three Heinkel He 162" which another source places on board but which seem to have come to the US in a different shipment, the five Messerschmitt ME-163 "Komet" (instead of two as I initially thought) and the two Bachem Ba 349 "Natter" which also seem to have been transported on a different vessel, and the probable Heinkel He 177A-7 claimed by some sources which to tell the truth might have been pure hearsay, since it's not even clear one such aircraft was ever captured by the US Air Force and the only known three examples were flight-tested after the war by the British and French.

    Thank you for this sea of informations, wingsofwrath. I would never have guessed it... I never heard talking about "operation LUSTY". The only thing familiar to me, is the shape of the ME 262... I guess you made a direct hit, wingsofwrath.
    Kind regards to all of you.

    Wingsofwrath: Your Turn, sir!
    An Exceptionally Full answer, well up with your usual informative and detailed standards.
    My respectful compliments to you,my friend.

    One detail I may be able to add. The references to the He.177 A7 made over the years have tended to assume the entire aircraft was present.
    It may be of interest to know that in my youth it was widely known the USA had very little interest in the He.177 airframe family. However: the A7 variant was of huge interest because of the guided-bomb launching and controlling ability the aircraft possessed: a field in which the Americans had themselves done much research and experimentation.
    The He.177 A7 components present were precisely those related to airborne launch and guidance control of bombs and rocket-propelled missiles such as the Hs.293.
    I'm my youth, that was reasonably common knowledge, which (it appears) over the decades since has begun to be mis-interpreted as the presence of the entire airframe where in fact only the launch and guidance components were transported to America.

    Kind and Respectful Regards Wingsofwrath my friend, Uyraell.
