    Hello Luc,

    These are the informations I got from the 350 Squadron ORB:

    "Form 540
    8/12/1944

    Weather : Fair
    Operations : patrols

    1500-1655

    F/L Seydel, F/O Duchateau, F/S Jaminé, P/O Donck ran into snowstorm

    Seydel and Duchateau landed at Ursel
    Jaminé crashed at Maldegem
    Doncq landed in a field


    Form 541
    8th DEC

    NH710 Seydel Patrol VENLO-VEERT 15.00-16.55 Landed at Ursel
    RM623 Duchateau " 15.00-17.05 “ “ B61
    RB189 Jaminé " 15.00-17.20 Crashed MOLDEGHEM
    RB158 Doncq " 15.00-17.20 Landed in a field"

    The ORB mentions RB145 in a mission earlier that day flown by Mehuys. But no mention of crashlanding on that mission.

    remark: Maldeghem is written here as Moldeghem


    Best regards,


    Serge
