    Default JU88 Encounter

    Hoping someone can help or point me in the right direction on this rather long shot.

    On October 16th 1940, a No.218 Squadron Bristol Blenhiem flown by F/Lt Shaw was tasked with carrying out a daylight weather recce to Terschelling. While on the return flight Shaw and crew chanced upon a JU88 50 miles off the coast of East Anglia, Shaw attacked the JU88 inflicting minor damage, the JU88 "Escaped" turning back over the North Sea.

    Can anyone tell me of any Luftwaffe activity on this date, and if possible any JU88 units involved.

    Kind reagrds

    Hi Steve!

    The answer could be in the Volume 2 of 'THE BLITZ THEN AND NOW' Edited by Winston G. Ramsey in which all the Luftwaffe operations of October 1940 seem to be.
    Unfortunately I don't have this volume that you'll find at this link:

    Perhaps will be we be enough lucky to find someone in the forum that have volume 2?
    Regards.
