    Default W4960 Lancaster MK1 bomber

    Goodevening, my name is Andre and i am new to this forum. But... I do have a special question regarding the W4960 460 sq Lancaster MK 1 bomber lost on 12 june 1943 in my country nearby Reeuwijk.

    I am looking for the Night Raid Report(s) of that particular raid in JPG or in PDF format. Is there anybody of you who can help me with information please?

    warmest regards

    Andre

    Hi Andre,

    I have a photo of the crew and a list of their ops if needed. They were shot down by Oblt Heinz Olof of 2./NJG1 for his 4th victory he would finish the war with 9/10 victories before being wounded on 31/12/44- 1/1/45 when he was shot down by a Mosquito.

    Regards,

    John.
