    Route for the heavies going to Hasselt on May 11/12 was:
    BASE - ORFORDNESS - 5150N 0400E - TARGET - 5053N 0525E - 5050N 0518E - 5145N 0353E - ORFORDNESS - BASE
    H Hour was 2350
    Master Bomber and Deputy MB were from 156 Squadron - Their call signs were COACHDOOR & COACHDOOR TWO
    The Form B also indicates 156 Squadron sent 6 "Practice Bombers" which I have not seen before.
    Cheers
