Dear sirs

I would like  to inform you that originaly bridge on Sava river at Bosanska Gradiška wasn’t destroyed by plane bombing then mining by Yugoslav army in retreat against German corp.picture in attm

If you have more pictures of that area be so kind and post them on site


This photo (slika raz)shows present bridge (photo from 1960 -1970) ,but you can see water mills downstream ,one of water mill can be seen on your photo at left corner during the bombing pontoon bridge 1945,on other you have closer yiew peple crossing  pontoon and (1939) shows bridge after construction(destroyed 1941 as i told you during withdrawal of the army 1941)

Photo after ww2 shows  rebuild bridge near by originaly position  ,taking from Bosnia side

No problem posting pictures on your site
