    Default Wellington lost 6/7 October 1942

    I am looking for details of Wellington losses on this night. I know 75 Squadron lost one to a nightfighter, but were any others lost? A fellow enthusiast indicates 115 Squadron lost a bomber but curiously most sources state the losses were Halifaxes, Stirlings and Lancasters?

    regards

    Keith
