    Default RAF Liberator v two Condors.

    Looked through my papers and books in relation to this action but can find no details. Can anyone please help.

    Regards
    Peter.

    August 1943 - off the Portuguese coast: a Liberator engaged two Condors
    in the vicinity of a convoy (ex. Gib bound for UK) downing one and driving off the other but sustaining fatal damage itself. After ditching the crew was recovered intact by the destroyer Highlander. Thus an account by a merchant seaman who observed the action. Can anyone help by identifying the Liberator, etc?

    Thanks for looking guys, but I have since discovered the aircraft was from 1st/480th Anti-submarine Group and not RAF.
