    Hi Pete
    From Bomber Command War Diaries by Middlebrook and Everitt. Stuttgart was attacked by 494 Lancasters and 2 Mosquitos of 1,3,5,and 8 Groups on 28/29-7-44 as the last of a series of raids on this target. The raid was intercepted by German Fighters over France on the outward leg in bright moonlight. 39 Lancasters were shot down, 7.9% of the force. Hamburg was also raided by a total of 307 a/c and a further 119 raided a stores area in the Foret de Nieppe.
    Regards
    Dick
