    Hello, and welcome.

    We know the following:

    13/14 November 1942.
    No.108 Sqn.
    Wellington IC HX380
    Op: Benghazi.

    Took off 1910, LG 106, detailed to bomb shipping and harbour facilities at Benghazi. On return, an engine cut over Sollum after flak damage, a propeller was lost and the aircraft belly-landed 48km S of Fuka. The crew found an Italian lorry while walking to base, repaired it and drove back, arriving on the 14th. Struck off charge 16 November.
