    Default 99 Sqdn ORB Barron crew lost 12 June 1941

    Looking for the 99 Sqdn ORB especially for the Barron crew shotdown 11/12 June 1941 over Holland. Would like to know their usual (Wellington)aircraft number which was on minor repair that evening so they allocated a second machine which was P9281. Also I would like to know the take off time from Waterbeach. Does also some one know their target objective at Dusseldorf???

    Many Thanks,
    Adrian
