    30/04/1944 MM359 flew a mission with F/O HK Joseph ans P/O PGG Lewis.

    Good evening Alain
    Thanks for trying to help me.
    ORB is not perfect.
    Please look into the ORB (last view)
    MM248 - Engine lost power on take-off swung and u/c raised to stop Hartford Bridge 24.11.1943
    LR479 - On return from France, attacked by 12 FW 190s. After evasive action, E/A were lost in cloud. Mosquito damaged; made safe landing, crew unhurt. 06.07.1944
    MM281 - Engine cut on take-off swung and wheel torn off Melsbroek 26.12.1944
    All seems hopeless.
    Regards Pavel
