    Default Hudson 206 Squadron 15/8/40

    Hi guys

    According to various sources, Hudson 'V' of 206 Squadron engaged and shot down a He59 on 15 August 1940.

    On checking the ORB I could only find a combat for Hudson 'E' (N7367) skippered by a Plt Off Bird, who engaged in an inconclusive combat with a He115.

    Are these one and the same with obvious inaccuracies? Or did I miss something?

    Perhaps one for Ross?

    Cheers
    Brian

    Hi Brian,

    Old threat, but I can shed some light on this. Actually these are 2 different events:

    According to the ORB of Bircham Newton Hudson E/206 engaged a He 115 in the early morning of August 15th. In the evening of that same day V/206 piloted by P/O Watson shot up a seaplane 30 miles North West of Borkum. This last one may have been the He 59.

    Regards,
    Hans
