    Hi Tom
    The site:

    Help with a 68/96 sqn RAF nightfighter claims?
    forum.12oclockhigh.net/archive/index.php?t-14604.html

    Now for his 68sqn claims. The place of combat is quite vague as the info is taken from his log-book. However, due to their patrol radius, I am assuming most occurred over the channel.

    25/10/41 In Beaufighter 'X' R2185 from High Ercall, pilot W/O Welch, 1 Ju88 Damaged.
    26/3/42 In Beaufighter 'Z' X7555 from Coltishall, pilot W/O Welch, 1 He111 Damaged.
    4/6/42 In Beaufighter 'F' V8255 from Coltishall, pilot P/O Welch, 1 Ju88 Destroyed.
    27/7/42 In Beaufighter 'F' V8255 from Coltishall, pilot P/O Welch, 1 Do217 Destroyed, 1 Do217 probable.
    18/3/43 In Beaufighter 'D' V8619 from Coltishall, pilot F/O Allen, 2 Do217's Destroyed.

    Where is the truth. ORB is certainly the cornerstone of research.

    Thank you very much Tom.
    Yet another source I found. Husár Rudolph (obs 68 Sqn) wrote in his diary.

    The evening service.We started on the Germans, but the transmitter did not work so we had to return to the airport. W/O Welch shot at Fric, but did not get it.

    Hi Tom
    Archives Kew says
    Family History: Combat Reports, Second World War
    Name: Welch
    Squadron 68
    Other Dates of Combat: 26-Mar-1942
    25 October 1941 AIR 50/27
    Name: Bennett
    Squadron: 68
    Other Dates of Combat: 26-Mar-1942
    25 October 1941 AIR 50/27
    This is definite proof.
