    Default 196 Squadron ORB - 4 June 1943

    Hello,

    Does anyone have the ORB of 196 Squadron (Wellington Squadron) dated 4 June 1943 ?

    I search any information about a Wellington damaged this day, early in the morning, by a Luftwaffe Ju 88, off Brest. I suspect this Wellington belonged to the 196th Squadron.

    Thanks in advance

    Pierre Babin

    Hi,

    I checked 196 Sqn ORB for June 1943 and between the 3rd and 11th they did very little flying and nothing operational. There is no mention in the ORB Summary or Record of Events of any Wellington loss or damage.

    Hello Pierre,

    According to Roland Bohn's book 'Raids Aériens sur la Bretagne durant la Seconde Guerre Mondiale': 92 (OTU) and 93 (OTU) Groups also operated with Wellingtons aircraft to St-Nazaire, Lorient, and Brest on 3/4 June 1943.
    I'm sorry but this is all I have.
    I expect it'll help.
    Regards.
