    Default 142 Squadron/August 6, 1942-September 3/1942

    Has anyone got the ORB for 142 Sq.? I'm interested in a brief period from August 6, 1942
    after the Heath crew arived at 142 Sq, up to September 3, 1942, and its activity in Wellington IV Z1466 QT-L.
    crew and several others who crashed in the vacinity.

    Default 142 ORB and the PRO again

    If wonder if any of this forum's posters might be visiting the PRO this
    week or early next?
    I'm anxious to get feedback on the ORB of 142 Squadron and any
    references to Sgt. Harold Heath, his crew and Wellington Z1466.
    It crashed over Holland on Sept.3/1942. I'm interested in any ops they were on between
    August 15 and Sept. 3. 1942. and the serial of any other Wellingtons they flew
    Also, one of the crew, Sgt. Chipman Fraser flew on ops to Dusseldorf while
    at 16 OTU on July 31, 1942. I'd appreciate any details related to this
    op(#of aircraft,others in crew).

    I'll gladly cover any costs involved.

    Thanks.

    Floyd Williston

    Note: The crew arrived at 142 Sq. on August 5/42 and may have been on leave from August 6-15/1942.

    Hello Floyd,

    I can help you out with this one. I am doing some research on the Z1466 on this moment as well. If you are still interested, I have got an overview of previous missions.
