    Hello Phil,
    You may be correct ?
    Thank you for your input.

    My info comes from Henk's Lists.

    I see in "FAA Aircraft 1939-1945" that it has on page 457, the following.
    "JT389
    1834 Sqn 'Victorious' ( 7B) from 27.2.44; Operation Lombard, attack on convoy N of Stadtlandet, hit by flak, crashed off Aalesund, Cat Z 1.6.44 ( S/L JFR Ball PoW).

    So it could be that the CatZ date was after the event ?

    OR

    Was the Lombard Operation in June of 44 ?
    If it was earlier then 27-2--44 could well be right ?

    Anyone know when Operation Lombard took place ?
    OK I found this -

    May-June 44.

    https://codenames.info/operation/lombard/

    So looks like you are correct Phil.

    Thanks
    Alex
