    Default 101 squadron

    I am interested in details of the 101 squadron operation bombing Stettin in the Baltic on 29th August 1944. Particularly the number of squadron aircraft and the casualties. How many aircraft were there in the main force? Help please.

    101 Squadron put up 20 aircraft for this raid.

    Three were lost: LL757 (F/Lt Stewart and crew - 9 airmen), LM479 (F/O Foster and crew - 8 airmen) and ME592 (F/O Piprell and crew - 8 airmen)

    Sgt Cunningham of the Piprell crew was sole survivor of these 25 airmen.

    Regards,

    Dave
