    See at 2.35 onwards...the candle markers going down...look like flocks of individual lights in clusters ...if you imagine each bunch is roughly 200 meters long...They were in different colours denoting individual targets...or depending on the wishes of the ‘master bomber’..the commander of the raid.For instance there could be repeat drops of the same or differing colours to indicate a new target or reinforcing an existing again.
    Gruesome stuff..a long time ago but still blood curdling.

  2. The Rainbow Pathfinder was a white flare with a sort of purple tinge to the flame.

    I believe the Germans called the flares dropped by the Pathfinders
    Weihnachtsbaum
    or Christmas tree's to us

    Thanks for all your efforts Kev. It’s been nice to have some vintage labels to look forward to during these odd times. I can’t say I’m a fan of the Rainbow labels, some are a real dog’s breakfast but they’ve been interesting nonetheless. Good luck with hunting down more goodies.

    Thank you from me too, Kev. It's been a fascinating few months and finally given me the impetus I needed to start my own collection...

    Thanks again to everyone that contributed over the last 4 months or so, as for sanity.. not sure how many of us were sane to start with........
    I'm taking a break from vintage pyro for a while and the store will also be closed for about a week.

    Having some R & R and afterwards it will be back to normal starting with another large intake of vintage pyro in need of new homes. Took me all day yesterday just to go through it all and list out what there was...............
