    Default Spitfire losses 4 December 1942 - Middle East.

    On 4 December 1942, 18 Squadron lost 6 Blenheims and 614 Squadron lost 3 Blenheims in an attack on Robb airfield, Tunisia. I understand that Spitfires were also lost duing this action.
    Could anyone please ID the Spitfires / Squadron / crew involved.

    Any help would be appreciated

    Regards
    Peter

    are any casulaties from teh Blenheims buried in a particular cemetery.

    If so, then check that cemetery listing on the CWGC site, sort the casualties by date of death (new function on the CWGC site) and see who else is dead from that and are they from Spitfire/fighter Squadrons.

    I see one or more of the crews from 18 Sqn are buried in Beja War Cemetery.

    Same as a crew from 614 and there is a 13 Sqn crew there also.

    J P Turner and R J Curtiss of 81 Sqn are on Malta Memorial for this day.
