    Default Billy Drake's claim 13.12.41

    Hello Everyone,

    Billy Drake claimed a French Martin 167 (Marauder) on 13.12.41 while serving in Western Africa with 128 Sqn.
    Does anyone know more about this claim especially about the fate of the crew. The ORB is sketchy and doen't give much details on this event but as it seems that the French didn't reported any fatal loss, it can be presumed that the crew was captured or the aircraft was able to reach French territory (even if the claim was confirmed).

    Thanks in advance

    Phil

    Hello Phil,

    Sorry I cannot add required details to you question, but would point out that the Martin 167 was the Maryland, you boys did not get Marauders until much later !

    Regards,

    Ian

    Yes Ian, you're right, I was talking of course of a Maryland.
