    Default 104 Squadron loss, October 11th 1944?

    Hello everyone,

    I have the following six members of 104 Squadron, lost on October 11th 1944, and all buried in Padua War Cemetery:

    162013 F/O (Pilot) John Edward BODENHAM
    1586935 Sgt (Air Bomber) Robert Oswald BUNDY
    1804491 Sgt (AOp/AG) Horace Norman EATO
    982366 Sgt (Pilot) John McDougal KERR
    1624474 Sgt (AG) James Duncan LAKIN
    1542335 Sgt (Nav) James McGUCKIN

    Are they a complete crew, and of so, can anyone provide an associated aircraft loss?

    Many thanks,

    Regards

    Simon

    Simon,

    No. 205 Group ORB only identifies the lost Wellington as "C".

    Target was Verona Marshaling Yard.

    Regards,

    Dave

    That was the full crew of Wellington X LN841/C. Took off at 2100 from Foggia Main to attack the Verona East Marshalling Yards. Possibly the aircraft seen going down in flames close to the target.

    (Source: a draft copy of Gunby and Temple's forthcoming Vol 2 of 'Middle East and Mediterranean Bomber Losses, 1943-1945'.)
