Hi,

Larry Donnely’s The Other Few includes a claim for a destroyed Do 17 on the 2nd September 1940 by a Westland Lysander of the Special Flight at Christchurch. The Do 17 crashed into the sea.

I found no combat report from this date on the National Archives site. The only combat report for any “Special Duties Flight” was from 12 May 1940. According to http://www.hampshireairfields.co.uk/airfields/xch.html the Special Duties Flight at Christchuch were involved in radar experiments and had a number of different aircraft types including 3 Hurricanes for defence.

First of all I am interested in the names of the crewmembers but any other information about the combat is appreciated.

Regards,
Peter
