    With tank ace Otto Carius. As he is still alive maybe it is even possible:-).
    Have spoken with Otto a few times about the Narva combats , he is maybe too old to answer lots of questions but will still reply !!

    Thought shall be the harder , heart the keener,
    Courage the greater as our strength faileth.
    Here lies our leader ,in the dust of his greatness.
    Who leaves him now , be damned forever.
    We who are old now shall not leave this Battle,
    But lie at his feet , in the dust with our leader

    Adolf Galland.

    I want to know why he was such a fantastic pilot and what the ME262 was really like to fly.

    Probably Barnes Wallis, even though he wasnt involved in the fighting part of the war a few pints and conversations with him about blowing things up would be pretty good

    Thanks

    Probably Herman Goering. In a Schloss somewhere in the Schwarzwald after a days hunting you'll be guaranteed good food, good wine, good beer and quality cigars.

    For me it would have to be Winnie, a chilled bottle of his favourite champagne, Pol Roger to start with, followed by his after breakfast favourite, Johnny Walker red label and soda.

    I wouldn't ask him any specific questions, just allow him to give forth whilst we both smoked a Romeo y Julieta in deckchairs under a huge Cedar of Lebanon at Chartwell...perhaps he'd talk of his battles against the Reich and the Japanese, or his time in the Sudan or on the veldt and his escape from the Boers, or of his love of bricklaying, English garden wall bond or Flemish, doesn't really matter, it would all be so.....well, you know.

    I would leave knowing the words that his daughter Mary wrote to him on his death bed.... 'I owe you what every Englishman, woman and child owes you - liberty itself.'
    And that would just sum it all up.
    Corny?...Maybe, but the best piss up any right minded Englishman could wish, ever!

    Wing Commander Brendan, 'Paddy', Finucane, DSO, DFC, second highest scoring RAF ace of the war even though he died aged 21 in 1942. He was from Dublin where I'm from. By all accounts he enjoyed a beer and was a gregarious individual. If he lived he probably would have become the top scoring RAF pilot of the war.

    On another tack, I would like to meet my paternal Grandfather who left his family behind and disappeared. He was a merchant seaman and may have gone down with his ship during the war but nobody knows. I would like to find out what happened to him.

    Sgt. Robert McKusick , US Army 3rd Armoured Division. --- Bob drove a Sherman
    and was part of the battle of the bulge.

    He was the boss of my first full time job after I graduated highschool.
    I worked for him 5 years. He was one of the best employers I have ever
    had and he taught me a lot. He passed away in 1982. I would love to
    be able to go back and buy him a beer and say THANK YOU.

    Also.

    When I was 14 years old, we parents had a gentleman over for dinner
    one night. He name was Muller. I don't remember his first name. He spoke
    with a very heavy German accent and I asked him if he had been in the war.
    Come to find out he was a U boat captain who had his boat sunk and spent
    part of the war in a Scottish POW camp.. Being 14, I didn't think to ask very
    detailed questions and i wasn't smart enough to right down what he did talk
    about---opportunities missed .
