    Hi,

    Looking for the M/B for the small raid against the naval guns at Dishoek on October 29th 1944.

    TIA

    Steve Can you give me an H-Hour or details on what the Master Bomber said - all I have is target codes? There were 11 A/Ps on Walcheren, the attacks began at 1100 and were staggered 15 minutes apart with the last H-Hour at 1300

    Hi David,

    The squadrons were over the AP between 10:30 - 10:38 hours. The M/B was hard to hear but one report records : "bomb between Red & Greens'

    On further checking the Target code could be 2?J174 Aiming point A

    Regards

    S/L HJ Davies was Master Bomber, F/O JFS Wainwright was Deputy. Both were from 7 Squadron.
    Cheers
