    Default 235 Squadron / Tirpitz

    On 6 Feb 1943 Sgt RJ Barkham 1317383 and Sgt WA Wilkinson 1319296 were lost when Beaufighter EL405 T/235 failed to return from Ops. It is believed that the aircraft was involved in an attack on or near Tirpitz, if not, what were 235 Squadron doing on that day?

    Many thanks

    Peter
