    Default 305 Sqn first Mitchell operations

    Morning All,

    Does anyone know the identity of the Mitchells which took part on the first two raids on that type by 305 Sqn (5 and 8 November 43). In the ORB that was left blank (no serial nor individual letter).

    Thanks for helping

    Phil

    G'day Phil

    Not sure if you have the information or not, but the squadron sent out four Mitchells on the 4th of November.

    Cheers...Chris

    Hello Phil,

    From an article by Lechoslaw Musialkowski in Lotnictwo z Szachownica:

    Nov. 5th 1943; Target, V1 launching sites near Mimoyeeques, France.

    SM-Q FV948
    SM-L FV192
    SM-A FL691
    SM-C FV913

    Nov. 8th, 1943; Target same as on the 5th.

    SM-Q FV948
    SM-O FL626
    SM-E FV923
    SM-C FV913

    Hope this helps,
    Mieszko

    Thanks Miezko, that helps a lot.

    I checked 305 ORB once more, but the first operation recorded is Ramrod 222 on 5 November. So I'm not aware of any operations carried out on the 4th. Chris, would you have any details about this?

    Thanks

    Phil
