    Hello Pats,

    I'm drawing a rather long bow here Pats, but could the following be what you are looking for ?

    7/8 February 1945 Op:Mainz
    692 Squadron
    Mosquito XVI MM182:P3-Q

    Took-off 2012 Graveley. F/O. Doran, a veteran of 52 operational missions, is buried in Rheinberg War Cemetery.

    F/O P B Doran +
    Sgt D H Beckolt PoW

    See:
    Royal Air Force Bomber Command Losses of the Second World War. Vol.6, 1945.
    Chorley,W.R.
    Earl Shilton:Midland County Pubs.,1998
    pp.71 & 209.

    There is an unconfirmed report, that this aircraft crashed at Berglicht, in the Saarland. www.geiger-roland.de/HistorischeForschung/absturz1939%201945.pdf

    I could not locate any POW details for Beckolt, and there is no mention of this loss in the recently published, Nachtjagd War Diaries, Vol.2.

    May I ask, what is your source for 'Leulck's', service number?

    All the best,
    Col.

    Col,
    Footprints on the Sands of Time has your D.H. Beckolt, as Sgt D.H. Beckett, 692sqdn Mosquito MM152, pow camp not known, back in UK 11/5/45, this also matches with Ross's pow files on this site.

    Default Nn724 & Mm182

    Hi

    NN724, according to pilot F/O Fowler, was shot down by a Ju88 approximately 15 minutes after bombing target and crashed as per Henk's post.

    MM182 crashed in wooded area near Berglicht im Wald, Rheinland-Pfalz. Cause of loss was an engine fire and was not due to enemy action.

    Cheers

    Rod
