    Default December 16/17,1943 405 Squadron.

    I am looking for details of the following two crashes, JB-477 and JB-369.
    All the evidence I have shows McLennan flying JB-477 coded LQ-D and Allan flying JB-369 coded LQ-O.
    Thanks, Richard

    From my notes on JB369:
    Failed to return from operation over Berlin on 12 December 1943. Crashed near Gravely, Bedffordshire on 17 December 1943, attempting to land in heavy fog. Caught fire after crashing. 405 Squadron lost 3 aircraft to fog that night.

    and for JB477:
    Crashed near Gravely on 17 December 1943, attempting to land in heavy fog.

    The on line ORB up to end of January 1944 can be found on this reel: http://heritage.canadiana.ca/view/oo...2269/1?r=0&s=1
