    Default Berlin raid 24 3 44

    Lancaster ND565 KM-C of 44 sqd. was returning from Berlin when, having strayed off course over the Ruhr, due to the exceptional high winds on that night, it was shot down, at 0001 hrs., by flak, at Angermund nr. Dusseldorf.
    Can anyone identify the flak unit involved or direct me to a source I could search ?

    Hello,

    Here's the entry taken from the manuscript of the Nachtjagd War Diaries 2nd edition:

    -44 Sqn Lancaster ND565: hit by 2. & 3./schw. Flak Abt. 177, 5./schw. Flak Abt. 233, 1.-3./schw. Flak Abt. 472 and 1./schw. Flak Abt. 642, crashed at Düsseldorf-Angermünd at 00.07 hrs.

    May I ask what your particular interest is in the loss of this aircraft, and do you know if there is a photo of the aircraft and crew available?

    Cheers, Theo
