    Default Beaufighter Ic T4890 of 236 Sqn RAF

    Hello

    The Beaufighter Ic T4890 of 236 Sqn RAF went missing with both crew on 19 March 1942. I would like to know what was their mission and the general area they went missing in (for example North Sea).

    Thanks in advance

    Laurent

    Shipping reconnaissance Le Havre; may have been British Channel or North Sea.

    Thanks, Henk, as the aircraft went missing nobody will ever know but as the target was Le Havre, I will rather list it as "English Channel".

    Kevin, I sould have said I had the crew names, but thanks anyway
