    Default 163 Squadron RAF - raid on Berlin March 13th 1945

    After a lot of research, I have found interesting facts about a Mosquito raid with 163 sqn RAF March 13th 1945 on Berlin.
    One of the aircraft KB476 taking part of the raid barely made it back on the proverbial wing and a prayer.
    What they also did and probably never knew was giving Joseph Goebbels a bloody nose that night.


    I have made a video about this story and published it on my youtube channel: The Wooden Wonder Berlin 1945

    There is also a follow up the Pilot of KB476 and his career: The file of an RAAF Pilot

    I have tried to find more info on the Canadian navigator James Edwin Wynes J/44954, for a follow up on him - no luck so far..

    I would really like if the relatives to these brave airmen could see these videos..
