    Default Avro Lancaster LM743 A4-R FTR 02/11/1944

    Hi,

    No.195 Squadron based at RAF Witchford lost Lancaster LM743 A4-R on a daylight raid to Homberg, November 2nd 1944.

    The aircraft was skippered by New Zealander F/O R Palmer 421393 RNZAF, he and five of his crew survived. I am trying to establish the crash location of this aircraft.

    Any help / pointers welcome.

    TIA

    Peter,

    We dont have Palmer 421393 in the POW List - but the other five members are there.
