    Default Claim of 26/27-11-1944

    On 26/27-11-44 Hptm Dietrick Kornblum of 9./NJG 2 claimed a Stirling NW of Juist at 22:34 hrs.
    It have been suggested that it would be Stirling LK151 of 138 Sqn.
    But that aircraft would be nowhere near Juist as it dropped in Denmark about 1 hour after the claim. It was lost afterwards but it is not known where and how.
    And apparently there is no other Bomber Command aircrafts that fits.
    Is there a Coastal Command aircraft missing on this night ?

    Hello,

    It could be LK272 also of 138 Squadron.
    Follow this link:

    It is believed to have been damaged by flak.

    Hi Soren,

    The only loss from Coastal is Halifax JP319.

    Took off from Stornoway at 14:14 hrs, last heard on w/t at 19:00 hrs.

    Missing over Skagerrak (one crewman rests in Tonsberg Old Cemetery, Norway, the others are all on the Runnymede Memorial.

    Regards
    Ross

    Sorry!!

    Concerning 38 Group the 'nearest' aircraft lost is LK241 of 299 Squadron (W/O Dickie) on 27/28 November 1944 during operation 'Tail 8' and which is believed to have crashed in the North Sea.
    Nothing for 26/27 November 1944.

    Thank you gentlemen.
    I have had a close look at a map.
    If LK151 left Denmark just north of Esbjerg and navigated towards Cromer he may have passed within 100 kilometers of Juist.
    Only the time do not fit, but that can be due to a clearical error.
