2015 Celebrating 75 Years of the liberation of Internees

St. Helier and Bad Wurzach

Outward Journey

Twelve former internees posing for a group photo in the departure lounge at Jersey Airport at the start of their 75th Liberation celebrations in Bad Wuezach.

Our Chartered Plane.

Our journey started with such promise, a smooth check in a get together over refreshments in the departure lounge. The Jet arrived on time we boarded and waited for our journey to start. The pilot spoke to us and explained that we were stuck the push back equipment would not work with this type of aircraft. A number of ideas were tried including trying to man handle the jet backwards. After a 2 hour delay were finally were on our way, we were met by a welcoming committee in Friedrichshafen waving Jersey flags. We boarded our coach for a short trip to our final destination Bad Wurzach.
