    Default Stirling on Lille, 6 july 1941

    Hi,

    On 6 july 1941, squadron 242 escorted Stirling on Lille.

    Does anybody know the squadron of these Stirling ? Any details in The Bomber Command War diaries.

    TIA

    Bertrand

    Hi Bertrand
    The Bomber Command War Diaries(Middlebrook and Everitt) doesn't give Sqns it just records for that date that 9 Stirlings,escorted by fighters, went to the Le Trait Shipyards and Lille without loss.

    Default 3 from No. 7 Squadron and 6 from No. 15 Squadron

    hello,

    The first 3 were detailed against Le Trait and the 6 others went to Lille-Fives.

    PS : as in my private message to Bertrand, I have some pages of No. 15 Squadron ORB for July 1941, in case more details would be needed.
