    Default Attack on airfields ini Holland and Belgium on 25/26 july 1944

    Hello ,

    It seems that on 25/26 july 1944 31 Blenheims , 21 Bostons and 4 Mosquito's attacked airfields in Belgium and Holland . Wich squadrons were involved in this raid ?

    Thanks in advance

    Hi Alain

    Blenheims still being used in 1944? That's a surprise. Are you sure?

    Hello ,

    I got this some years ago , so the Blenheims must be a mistake.

    Hi Alain,

    To put 21 Bostons up would probably mean the use of both 88 and 342 squadrons, in that time frame.
    The 88 Squadron ORB does not show anything like this, infact night flying was abandoned on both nights 25 and 26 due adverse weather.

    Wrong year perhaps ?
