    Dear all,

    Can anyone provide me with a photo of F/O Brian P Curran RAAF and his crew & of their 619 Sqn Lancaster PB842, which FTR Politz raid 13/14 January 1945 (shot up by NF & landed in Sweden).

    Cheers, Theo

    Default PB842 Politz Raid 13/14 January 1945

    Theo,

    No I have not pictures but by father, M.P.B. Quigley was on PB842 for the Politz raid 13/14 January 1945 and wrote about it. I would be interested in any information you have on the crew also.

    Hello John, and welcome.

    You might like to chase up the following reference in your local library:

    "Making For Sweden ..." Part 1 - The RAF 1939 to 1945.
    Wegmann,Rolf & Bo Widfeldt.
    Walton-on-Thames:Air Research Publications,1997.
    pp.212-17. Includes a photo of Lancaster I PB842:PG-Y (p.215).

    Col.
