    Default Lysander operation Nicholas - 05/08/1944 on LZ Pluto South of France

    Hello,
    In the archive "AIR 20-8424 SD Ops Lysander SO", I found the Lysander operation Nicholas (H.Q. B.A.F) on night of 05/08/1944 on LZ Pluto (46 01 10 N - 04 44 10 E) in South of France, not mentioned by H Verity in his book.
    Anybody could help me to identify if this operation was conducted by the RAF 267 Squadron?? If yes do you know where I could get the Mission Report, please?
    Thank you very much,
    Best regards
    Treville

    Treville,

    It may be that the mission was conducted by 148 Squadron, which had several Lysanders on charge.

    David,

    No mention of No.148 Squadron participation in ops, in that area, on quoted date in Oliver Clutton-Brock's, Trusty to the End The History of 148 (Special Duties) Squadron 1918-1945 (Mention The War Publications, 2017). He simply states: "No operations were scheduled for 148 Squadron for the night of 5/6 August (1944)" ...

    No mention of No.148 Squadron participation in ops was confirmed by Terry Maker.
