    Default Mosquito DZ712, mission ?

    Hello,

    I am looking for the type of mission for the crew of Mosquito DZ712, 151 Sqdn, loss on May 17, 1943.


    Regards,

    Dan

    The Mosquito file says that it went missing on a night intruder mission

    Hi:

    This site:
    http://www.151squadron.org.uk/

    Says the crew were on a Ranger sortie. I believe this differs from an Intruder, as the latter was against a pre-designated target, whereas the former was to seek out "targets of opportunity" in a given area.

    A number of sources say this was a Ranger to the Laval area - crew are buried in Dinard.
