    Default Blenheim loss - 12/13 Jan 1942

    At a display at the Air Defence Radar Museum at Neatishead, Norfolk (an excellent museum) the plotting tables are laid out for 12/13 Jan 1942. There is a reference to a Blenheim going into the sea off Lowestoft at 0130 hours on return from a reconnaissance sortie. Can anyone identify the aircraft, and possibly give a little more info on the circumstances of the loss ?

    TIA for any gen.

    Unable to identify any Blenheim lost on 12th or 13th in the area

    Could it have been Hudson V AM638 of 500s which FTR from shipping reconnaissance?
