can any tell me what happened to the parachutes that where used on d dayi was talking with a mate about something the other day, and in the conversation he asked me, did i know what happened to the discarded parachutes used on d day and beyond, i saifd maybe the locals took some of them to use the silk for clothes and things, or did the army have a unit that went to collect as many as they could. its been a long time since i was searching for anything, the last time i ended up changing the war graves location for crew lost on a liberator ( can be found in the bbc archives) last flight of liberator b-24 ew277).ew277 should locate it on seach or even google. if you can give me anything on my question, you are welcome to email at(jimcracker7(att)hotmail.co.uk, i use a cybershop now, so only get to the pc when i can jim. ....Read More.jimcracker7 on 3rd June 2013 05:33:49
178 Sqn Losses.Hello, Have just received a copy of " Bombers over Sand and Snow" On page 351 there is a list of a/c losses for the squadron. "1943 - Halifax - 1 ; Liberators - 5. 1944 - Liberators - 27. 1945 - Liberators - 4". Were these the a/c lost ? Confirmation, corrections and additions welcome. I have seen that there are several earlier posts that reference 178 Sqn in this forum but thought to put all lost a/c in the one post. 1943 Halifax II - BB414 - 04/09/43. Liberator - AL565 - 27/04/43 ; AL620 - 16/01/43 ; AL638 - 05/03/43 ; BZ891 - 19/11/43. THE 5th escapes me. 1944 Liberator - AL630 - 27/04/44 ; BZ930 - 07/07/44 ; BZ932"Y" - 08/05/44 ; BZ948 - 19/03/44 ; EV812 - 19/03/44 ; EV822 - 07/07/44 ; EV839"J" - 22/08/44 ; EV841"H" - 07/05/44 ; EV961 - 14/08/44 ; EV974"D" - 10/08/44 ; EW106 - 11/10/44 ; EW140"K" - 11/05/44 ; EW160"E" - 28/08/44 ; EW264 - 15/08/44 ; EW275 - 15/08/44 ; EW277 - 14/06/44 ; EW280 - 14/10/44 ; KG828"F" - 15/08/44 ; KG873 - 15/08/44 ; KG887 - 08/08/44; KG933 - 17/08/44 ; KG934 - 13/09/44 ; KG938"A" - 21/08/44 ; KG942 - 05/10/44 ; KH100 - 06/11/44 ; KH243 - 06/11/44. THE 27th a/c escapes me ? 1945 Liberator - EW142 - 26/01/45 ; KG928 - 08/01/45 ; KH209 - 23/03/45 ; ( KH248 - 01/06/45 ; KL485 - 12/07/45 ?) or 2 other a/c ?
