Hello,

I am searching the loss of Halifax II JP206 of 624 Sqn RAF. All sources agree that it crashed in Ardeche, France, but the dates given disagree: I have read that this loss occured during the night of 25-26 June, the night of 26-27 June and the evening of the 27th...

So I would like a confirmation from the ORB that this bomber departed Blida in the evening of 26th. According to the local history, another aircraft was circling the dropsite and left without dropping, thinking JP206 had been shot down (it hit trees). So maybe there is an indication in the ORB about this other crew that saw the crash and reported the hour of it ?

Thanks in advance

Laurent
