|Lancaster DV333, 576 Sqn, UL-C2 - Stettin, 06 Jan 1944 - Looking for info please||Hi Matt,
My mate who looks after 460 Sqn records has got back to me. He says that when DV333 arrived at 460 Sqn on 3/11/43 it was give the letter codes AR-O and did it’s first operation to Düsseldorf on 3/4 November 1943 with that letter code. It did it’s second Op under the same letters on 10/11 November 1943 to Modane which was aborted after 2 hours due to technical failures.
After a change from ‘B’ flight to ‘C’ flight. DV333 changed its letter codes to AR-K2 for an attack on Berlin on 18/19 November 1943. DV333 was then posted away from 460 after this operation.
