    Default Name of Master Bomber

    Chaps,

    Can anyone please provide the MB for the raid on Fort D' Englos on August 9/10th 1944. I think it was a OBOE Mosquito marking operation.

    TIA

    Hi David,

    Thank you mate.

    You would not know who was the M/B on the attack against Russelsheim on August 12/13th 1944 would you ?

    Kind regards

    I do have that as well Steve. The Master Bomber for Russelheim for the 12/13th was W/C Peter Cribb, who was the OC 582 Squadron. His Deputy was W/C Brian McMillan from 582 as well. H-Hour was 0015.
