    Default Master Bomber and Deputy for Hagen 15/16, 1945

    I am looking for the identities of the Master Bomber and Deputy for Hagen March 15/16, 1945. It would save me having to surf through the ORBs. I know their call signs as King Cole I and King Cole II.

    Thanks in advance!

    I have identified the Master Bomber for Hagen, March 15, 1945 as S/L P.R. Melnor, Call-Sign KING COLE, of 635 Squadron flying PB.928 “J” [Correction "J", not "S"]. His Deputy was F/Lt. G.C. Hitchcock, Call-Sign KING COLE 2, also of 635 Squadron flying PB.922 “U”.

    The Call-Sign of Main Force was FOURPLY. The MET Recce a/c was Call-Sign PLATERACK.

    Another correction! S/L Mellor, not Melnor!

    Sorry!
