    Default Lt Douglas S Vieira and ASR for Fortress FA704

    I see that Ragnar has written about the above. The 206 Squadron ORB states that FA704 'R' was shot down by the U-boat it was attacking on June 11, 1943, and that the crew was found by a squadron aircraft the following day. References to the attempted rescue by Vieira - Ragnar's book extract on-line - state that he crashed on June 11 rather than June 12. Is it possible that the later date is the correct one?

    Please disregard my posting - I missed an earlier entry in the ORB which makes the June 11 rescue attempt by VP-84 make sense.
