    Default Raid on Le Havre - Sept 1944

    Hello,
    I'm a new member, I'm French, I live in Le Havre. I make research about the complete battle of Le Havre in September 1944, if I found with success war diaries of the infantry regiments, I don't have the same success with reports of the aircrafts and Squadrons of the RAF that participated in the battle with carpet bombing before the infantry attack. I have accounts by the French civilians who were below, but I would like to have now reports or accounts from the RAF during this bombing.

    Do you know if there is a list of all squadrons that participated to the different attacks on Le Havre in September 1944? Can you help me to have reports all bombing between 5 to 11 September 1944 please?

    Best Regards,
    Nic

    Thanks Steve. I'm interested about order mission, reports or any accounts about the bombing in Le Havre between 5 to 11 September 1944 of all squadrons that participated. I didn't succeed to send you a PM message or an e-mail.

    Best Regards,
    Nic
