    Hi Phill,

    from 1665 HCU ORB:
    "Halifax aircraft U-OG, piloted by P/O Nettlefield P E, 184442, was attacked and shot down by and (sic) enemy intruder, whilst carrying a cross country flight. Pilot, Flight Engineer and Gunner were killed."

    I'm afraid i haven't got any other details to hand but i'm sure some fellow forumites will add to this.

    Cheers,

    Tom
