    Default Stirling N3750 7 Sqn 2June 1942

    Hello all;

    My first post here; looking forward to seeing what help and advice is available. I am researching the loss of a Stirling N3750 on the night of 2 June 1942. It was returning from the second 1000 Plane Raid over Essen when it was shot down over Holland; all the crew managed to escape. What I don't know is, was it hit by flak or a night-fighter? Any information would be gratefully received.

    Hi Snapper,

    Welcome, according to Dr Theo Boiten Nachtjagd War Diaries this Bomber was not shot down by a night fighter. However Theo is updating his book under the title Nachtjagd Combat Archives but the second half of 1942 has not been released as yet, but is the next one to be published. In this second edition he is also including the Flak units claims as well so this may provide the answer for you.

    Regards,

    John.
