    RE: Bain

    "The first large scale raid on Bristol took place on the night of November 24th 1940 when 135 enemy bombers attacked the city between 18.30 hrs and 23.00 hrs. During this period No.951 Squadron at Bristol suffered its first fatality due to enemy action when at 20.55 hrs a high explosive bomb was dropped on Site 51/31 and the balloon set adrift. The site hut was damaged and 996328 AC1 J.Bain suffered serious injuries from which he died two days later in the Bristol Royal Infirmary. 'A' Flight HQ and billet were also reported slightly damaged by the blast."
