    Default RAF attack : a railstation South Vierzon / 8 August 1944

    Hi
    I would like to identify the RAF unit (Mosquito ?) which attacked the railstation of Reuilly 35 km South Vierzon (Central France). Possibly in the evening of Tuesday 8 August 1944.
    Thank you
    Philippe

    Hello Philippe,
    In regards to this post and your other post http://www.rafcommands.com/forum/sho...on-August-1944

    No. 305 Polish Squadron was part of No. 138 Wing, 2 TAF. All three squadrons (107, 305, 613) of 138 Wing flew the Mosquito Mk VI, and were based out of Lasham during August of 1944.

    For the night of 7/8 August 1944, 305 Polish Sqn’s ORB states “attack enemy lines of communication in Normandy” as the target area. The ORB then states individual aircrafts claims. In short, most aircraft attacked either trains or rail lines. One aircraft attack a barge on the Loire.

    For the night of 8/9 August 1944, 305 Sqn’s ORB states “ attack enemy movements in the region behind the front lines” as the target area. Most aircraft attacked trains, railway junctions, or motorized transport. One aircraft attacked a rail station, and one attacked a railroad bridge with “good results”.

    There are no precise locations given for either night.

    The region of Vierzon was targeted by 305 Sqn earlier in July of 1944.

    Hope this helps some,
    Mieszko
