    Philippe,

    On the night of 14 – 15 July 1944, No 305 (Polish) Squadron sent eight aircraft (De Havilland Mosquito, bomb load = 2 x 500 lbs plus two flares) to “attack enemy lines of communication” in the region of Etampes - Orleans – Chateauroux.
    Another eight aircraft (De Havilland Mosquito, bomb load = 2 x 500 lbs plus auxiliary tanks) were also sent to “attack enemy lines of communication” in the region of Le Mans – Tours.
