    Default Bomber Comnmand action night 10-11 May 1940

    During the night of May 10-11 Bomber Command only executed a single operation over Germany: 9 Whitleys.
    Can someone tell me from with squadron(s) these were and possibly which serials?

    Thanks! Pieter

    Hi Pieter
    From "The Whitley Boys" by G L "Larry" Donelly, Whitleys from 4 Group were sent to attack road/rail communications in the Cleve area on the night 10/11 May 1940. 4 a/c from 77 Sqn and 5 from 102 Sqn bombed. THere are no serials given nor is there any indication of others that did not bomb. No casualties are reported.
    Regards
    Dick
