    Default Bombers lost on Ramrod S.35, 6 September 1943

    Could someone please identify for me a Mitchell that crash-landed near Lydd in Part VI of Ramrod S.35 on 6 September 1943, and a Ventura that crash-landed near Rye in Part VII of the same operation?

    Thanks

    Steve,
    "2nd TAF" Vol.1 has on page 33 for FV921:
    Hit by flak Boulogne; crashlanded Brenzett (although read somewhere that crashlanding was near Ivychurch, Kent, about 08.30 hrs.
    Four crew injured:
    P/O J.R. MacDONALD - F/O F.E.G. CARMICHAEL - F/Sgt WP. BUSH - Sgt W. CROSS (where MacDonald may have been the pilot, Carmichael the Nav and the two NCO's WOp/Ag.
    Regards,
    Henk.
