    Default Blenheim L8398 of 55 Sq. lost on 2 May 1941

    Hello everybody,

    Blenheim L8398 of 55 Sq. was SOC on 2 May 1941, reason unknown.
    Is there anyone with access to the ORB (or any other info), who have any additional info?

    My co-author, Pel Temple, could find nothing in the ORB to explain this SOC. We wonder whether the aircraft was simply worn out.

    Hello David,

    Thanks for your quick reply. Actually it was your nice book that triggered the question since I've found an Italian claim on 2 May 1941 over North Africa. However if the ORB only mention that the aircraft was SOC and doesn't mention any operational sorties with it during the day, then the Italian claim was against some other aircraft.
