    Default 27/28.4.42 loss of Hudson AM571 of 407 (RCAF) Squadron

    Dear all,

    I am looking for the time of take-off, on the night of 27/28 April 1942, of Hudson V AM571 of 407 (RCAF) Squadron, which left Bircham Newton for a night anti-shipping patrol off the Dutch coast and was shot down by a German NF.

    Cheers, Theo

    Hi Theo,

    Time of take off was 20:20 hrs on the 28th. So loss considered to be late night of 28th rather than 27/28.

    In company with O/407. O lost sight of D at 22:15 hrs in position 54 50N, 5 50E.

    Regards
    Ross

    Hi Ross,

    Thanks for sharing this info -the NJ claim that I had in mind as a possible match against the 407 Sqn Hudson loss was made on 27-28.4.42, so cannot be tied to the Hudson loss after all.

    Cheers, Theo
