    Default BCL Look-up, 17 Sep 1941

    Could someone with BCL please advise me of the aircraft identification and crew (with fates) for a 2 Group Blenheim hit by Flak, which went into the Channel approximately 2 miles off the French coast between Boulogne and Hardelot, on return from Circus 95 to Mazingarbe on 17 September 1941?

    Thanks

    Steve,

    Only one Blenheim loss on this day. V6086 UX-X of 82 Squadron Harper CJ, Patterson JB and Bartrip DA all killed. Chorley does not say whether their bodies were recovered or not.
