    Default 102 Squadron RAF

    Good evening everybody,
    is anyone on the board able to give me the details of the ORB of 102 Sq for the day of Sept 17th 1944?
    It was the day that Halifax MZ289 was lost
    thanks

    Mr McNeill, thank you for your subtle suggestion to the forum members that my questions are answered.Things however are a bit more complicated. I will try to explain.....

    As a matter of fact I do have the Nat Archives copy of the Sept 44 ORB. Unfortunately it does not report any activities on day 16, 17, 18 and 19 of that month.It looks like all the pages are there. The suggestion is that they were (or a part of the Sq) occupied in a training scedule, off their base? Fact is: an a/c was lost on Sept 17th, probably over the Northsea.

    So my hope was that on this forum I would find someone interested in the daily activities of this Squadron 102 who could answer my question: "WHICH DUTIES WERE EXECUTED BY SQ 102 ON SEPT. 17th 1944?"
    They lost a plane and a crew on this date!!

    Or.. is there someone on the board able and willing to give me an indication in which file (unfortunately I do not live near KEW) of the Archives I can find this information?

    Wind your neck back in.

    You failed to say you already had the ORB and what it lacked either on this site or others.

    You get the answer to the question you asked.

    Now as to your new question Chorley Bomber Command Losses for 1944 states the aircraft was lost disposing bombs
