178 Sqn Losses.Hello, I think that the 5th 1943 a/c was AL620. In 1944 there was also the following -BZ894; BZ948; EV820; EV825; EW139; KG877. And that the other a/c in 1945 were - KH248; KL485 and also KH202. In 1946 there was Lancaster RE202 on 21st January. Confirmation or Corrections welcome. Thanks, Alex ....Read More.Alex Smart on 5th May 2018 09:35:11
