    Default Catalina attacked by Fulmars 22/7/41

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Hi guys

    Can anyone provide details of the above incident, please. Fulmars of 807 or 808 Squadrons from 'Ark Royal' mistakenly attacked a Catalina (202 Squadron?) out from Gibraltar believing it to be an Italian flying boat. One the Catalina's gunners was wounded.

    Names of Catalina crew (plus serial number) and identities of Fulmar pilots would be appreciated.


    Cheers
    Brian

    Brian,

    If no-one can provide a definitive answer you might like to try the 202 Sqn Association at http://www.202-sqn-assoc.co.uk/

    Thanks Brian (nice name!)

    I think a vist to the National Archives may be called for.

    Cheers
