    Default Bomber Command action night May 11-12 1940

    This night saw 19 Hampdens attack Moenchengladbach area.
    From Nos 49, 61 and 144sqn.
    L4068 of No49sqn and P1326 of No144sqn were lost, but other then that I have no details.
    Can anybody provide (rough) flight times, aircraft participating, targets?

    Thanks a lot, Pieter

    Hi Pieter,

    What are you exactly after? Do you need this kind of info to sort out a local incident? If so, there might be easier ways.

    Regards,

    Hi Hans,
    well, simply filling the gaps in my data, like so many others are doing.
    If you think there are easier ways to do that, please let me know.
    But I think that by posting the questions other people may also benefit from the data provided.

    Cheers, Pieter

    Hello Pieter,

    Obvious.
    I can provide the info requested, but I'm afraid I'm lacking time at the moment to sort out the details of the 19 Hampdens involved. Hence my question about your focus. If you're after targets it's more useful to have data from the Night Bomb Raid Sheets, for later raids the routes on the Raid Plot Maps would be of more use...

    If it's specifically all about individual aircaft and serials, please contact me on my PM in 2015 (technically in about 1,5 week).

    Kind regards,
    Hans
