Fairey Albacore losses, No. 119 Squadron, September 1944Hello Jim, I've sent you an e-mail. No. 119 Squadron was based at Swingfield, and lost two Albacores on that night : X9074 'Q', F/L ROSS, F/Sgt HYAMS and F/L SLATTER who was the the C.T.O., which I think was the Chief Technical Officer, but not sure. BF370 'U' S/L DAVIS D.F.C. and F/O LUNDY R.C.A.F. No. 143 Squadron was based at Manston, and lost two Beaufithers on that night : NE769 'C', F/L BUTTERFIELD and F/O TEBB. NE666 'Z' was hit by Flak and made a belly landing at Manston. Aircraft a write-off but the crew was safe (F/O CARR & P/O TILLEY). So the press report is not wrong, but the losses came from two RAF stations not far from each other, and led by the same control, known as Swingate. I'm also interested in knowing more about SLATTER's job and his presence in X9074. Regards Joss ....Read More.jossleclercq on 10th November 2014 12:04:46
