    Default 463 Squadron look-up please

    If anyone has the ORB for 463 Squadron, please could you do a quick look up for me: -

    28th September 1943 - was Lancaster JA965 written off by the squadron on this day, either operationally, or in a training accident?

    TIA,

    Greg

    Default Lanc Loss

    Greg

    That was No. 101 (B) Squadron bird. It was lost on the night of 27/28th after being shot down by a Luftwaffe night intruder near Wickenby, Lincolnshire.

    Cheers

    Thanks - not too sure what I was thinking of there. The 101 ORB shows that crew as being in ED410 on the 27th/28th but she had been lost earlier that month. A classic case of the paperwork not keeping up with the war I think. I'm calling it quits for the night and prescribing a large single malt I think :-)

    Thanks again.
