    Hi,

    Looking for the identify of the MB, call sign "Rembrandt" and DMB, call sign "Rembrandt 2" for the above operation.

    Thank you.

    Hi David,

    My thanks again. May I ask where this information is found, your own research or a TNA document?

    Regards

    These attacks normally used Oboe for the primary marking, so I first went to the RAF Little Staughton ORB since 109 Squadron was based there. That told me the H-Hour (21.00), that the 8 Group Form B to look for was No. 936. It also indicated that one of their Mosquitos was abortive on their marking run and the other was successful with an estimated target error of 33 yards from 22,000'. I then went to the 8 Group July appendices and looked up Form B No.936 checking to see which target had an H-Hour of 21.00 which was Z3246. It specifies 3/105 +2/109 + M AND D/156 +20/3 GROUP + 20/4 GROUP. I then went to the 156 ORB and looked up the two crews.
    Cheers
