    Default dropping leaflets

    Hi,

    for the raid against Dusseldorf on 1.8.1942 many a/c had leaflets on board. I am just wondering if the leaflets have been dropped during the flight to the target or after dropping the bombs. Someone of the crew must have had the time to do so.

    Any idea how that worked?

    Thanks.

    Best wishes.

    Marcel

    Hi Marcel, from my experience from 311 Sq equipped by Wellingtons (1940-42) this task was performed usually by the Wireless Operator and he throw them through the flare chute.
