    Default RAF NF claims MTO mid Dec 1942

    Gents, does anyone have any information on RAF NF claims between 7 and 15 December 1942 in MTO area? Alternatively, what units were operational in the area?

    Some of the claims (not complete):

    Night 11-12/Dec/42:
    Flt Lt Mitchell/Sgt Trebell 89 Sqn one Ju 88 over Algeria
    FO Spurgin/Sgt Morris 89 Sqn one Ju 88 over Algeria

    Night 12-13/Dec/42
    FO Greaves/WO Robbins 255 Sqn one He 111 Bone area, Algeria 2010 hrs
