Bruno Schlenski- German Paratrooper
Fallschirmjaeger
Bruno was born in Allenstein, East Prussia. He enlisted in the Luftwaffe in 1938. During the invasion of Poland he was the tail gunner in a Stuka. He then volunteered for the paratroopers and invaded Crete. He was captured on the second day after Graf von B... was killed next to him. He saw action in Russia and then returned to Italy where he was engaged at Monte Cassio. He crossed the Po river several times and was finally captured by the Americans. We met at the Braunschweig reunion and became good friends. We kept in regular contact. Bruno recently passed.
