Lost 206 Sqn Hudsons - June 25, 1942Hi Ross: Many thanks. The following comes from John Lowe's impressive and growing 206 Sqn web site, which I should have re-checked first - it contains a couple of recent and relevant additions. From: http://www.coastalcommand206.com/page18.htm In August 2009 I was contacted by Adriano Baumgartner who was researching RAF and Luftwaffe pilots. His research led him to Major Werner Hoffmann who was a German Ace with over 50 claims to his credit. We believe that Werner was responsible for the loss of one of the 2 Hudson's from 206 Squadron when he was in unit NJG 3, below is his account of that night supplied by Adriano. "I flew to West of Schleswig, to wait for the bombers on their return leg from Bremen. I was guided by Ground Control (Radar) onto a target. We located it visually and came in from behind, flying almost at the same level. I chose a Lockheed Hudson that was flying away from the main box. I drew very close until he filled the gun sight. I opened fire and saw his right wing on fire. Immediately after being hit the Hudson pulled up sharply, then the aircraft spinned to the right until the impact with the ground at 2:26hrs. I continued to orbit and was guided onto another target some time later. We identified it as a Whitley Bomber (serial number V6730). After my attack this bomber tried to runaway by diving but it was so heavily damaged that it made a forced landing some 6km North of Busem." It would seem that this was very likely F/Sgt Wright's aircraft, AM762, which crashed on land.

Are these stories feasible? (Please use discretion; no names, service numbers, etc.)"Brian, I have not found evidence of CC aircraft attacking pre-planned German targets, with the possible exception of a German port, or two, while searching out U-boats." It did not happen often but on the 25th June 1942 several Coastal Command aircraft and crews took part in the first 1,000 bomber raid to Bremen . Squadron Cat E losses were: No.320 Sqn T9435 No.206 Sqn AM606 No.206 Sqn AM762 (2 PoW) No.311 Sqn Z1090 Along with the CC line Squadrons No.6 OTU sent 10 Hudsons and No.1 OTU 20 Hudson with one aircraft failing to return.
