AUS414561 Sgt N T E HEWITT RAAF - Bale-out.Henk, Thanks for the listing. I suspect my man Hewitt might have been on one these aircraft (HF668 - HF629 or DF729). Thursday, 14 January, 1943. After dark RAF bombers were again in the air. Wellingtons of 150 Squadron taking off at 1740 to attack Bizerta. During the return flight the aircraft flew into a rainstorm, one crew being forced to bale out, while a second bomber force-landed on the seashore near Djidjelli.
