    Default evidence in camera - decoys situated around target areas

    Hello,

    in "Evidence in Camera" is a a series with the title "Decoys situated around target areas". For example:

    Vol 1 1942 12 07 Nr. 08 - "Decoys situated around target areas" Nr. ? Emden
    Vol 1 1942 12 28 Nr. 11 - "Decoys situated around target areas" Nr. 3 Bremen
    Vol 2 1943 01 25 Nr. 04 - "Decoys situated around target areas" Nr. 5 Cologne

    Does anybody know if there is an issue showing the decoys around Dusseldorf? That could be in the other issues of the end of 1942 or beginning of 1943.

    I know of one issue showing decoy oil tanks near Dusseldorf, but that is not part of this decoy series.

    Can anybody help?

    Thanks.

    Marcel

    Hi Marcel,

    Which site are you after?

    There were 4 decoy sites near Düsseldorf: at Zons, Lacherscheid, Osterath and Lohausen.

    Regards,
    Hans

    Hi Hans,

    I wondered if there is such an overview in Evidence in Camera, because there would have been a nice presentation of them in this publication I think. On the other side I am interested in all four of them but I did not get the files of them until now.

    Thanks for asking Hans.

    What I already have is this list of decoy sites, listing those four you mentioned.

    Hi Marcel,

    I only have small bits of information about two of these. Düsseldorf 4 (Lohausen) and Düsseldorf 1 (Zons) are briefly described in Interpretation Reports Nos. Q.73 dated 11.3.43 (TNA AIR 29/269) and Q.93 dated 12.7.43 (TNA AIR 34/289). My collection of Q Reports is very incomplete, but if you send me an email address by PM, I can provide you with these two.

    Best wishes,

    Jérémie

    Hi Jérémie,

    yes, these are the reports which I tried to get. I have sent a PM.

    I will try to get the other reports of AIR 34/303 Q 13.27 and from AIR 34/408 Q55.

    I hope someone has an "Evidence of Camera" collection of the time period I mentioned. Seems to be difficult to find.

    Marcel
