Hi all,

I have been carrying out some research on the Second World War Dead for Sydney Grammar School and at an ANZAC Day luncheon I was sitting next to an old boy by the name of C K Gilkes, he was telling me that their aircraft was shot down by a JU88 (he thought) on the above date. Two of the crew later died namely F/O L F Smith DFC and F/Sgt D E L Reddy RAAF. Ken told me that he spent the next two years in hospital.

Chorley lists cause as an intruder from V./KG2 (page 64 of Volume 8 BCL) and Intruders over Britain makes only a passing mention of the event.

Does anyone know who may have shot them down.
