    Hi Alex,
    yes I have read about them years ago, I think 210 or/and 240 Sq was involved. I have seen also a Log Book of a rigger with such records.
    What are you interested in?
    Maybe this operation? https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Operation_Orator

    John Iverach's trip to Russia but this was in 1941. See story Helensburgh Heritage web site in military section

    Alex, I have not read it before you have pointed out.
    My previous info was incorrect - the chap whose Log Book I have seen was in the same crew as John Iverach so it was 1941 not 1942.
