Which army did your grandfather serve in? Unless he served in the Soviet (or possibly in the German) army, there's a problem. Berlin fell to the Soviet Army in April 1945, but American and British soldiers didn't enter Berlin till July 1945. The notion that a German flag would have been left flying for that length of time, especially in central Berlin, is not credible. It would be helpful to know which army the questioner's granfather served in.
