Royal Norwegian Air Force aircrew serving 76 Sqn RAF during WWIIWould someone kindly help me translate this article? It seems to be about the Royal Norwegian Air Force serving in the Royal Air Force on 76 Sqn during WWII, their operations and their fate. I am in the last stages of compiling biographies on Squadron, Flight Commanders of 76 Sqn from 1916 to 2011 and while recently attending the disbandment parade of 76 Sqn at RAF Linton-on-Ouse, (12 May) I discovered there was once a Norwegian flight on 76 Sqn during 1944. This would make sense of a set of photos I have of airmen dressed in an unusual uniform at Holme-on-Spalding Moor, receiving decorations but alas they were untitled. I found this article on the internet in Norwegian:- "76 Squadron, kort historie 4 Group bestod i 1943 av 10 skvadroner bl. a. 76 Squadron. Tjeneste Etter flere mislykkede forsk tidlig under krigen, ble skvadronen operasjonell i 4 Group ved Middleton St George i juni 1941 og fortsatte operasjoner med Halifax. Mesteparten av skvadronen ble sendt til Midt-sten i juli 1942 og ble fordelt til andre enheter, men den delen som ble igjen i England ble gjenoppbygget og fortsatte fly Halifax i 4 Group hele krigen og var stasjonert ved Linon-on-Ouse og Holme-on-Spalding Moor. Operasjonell ytelse Antall raid: Halifax &#8211; 376 bomberaid, 17 minelegginger, 3 flyveblad = 396 raid Avganger og tap: Halifax &#8211; 5123 avganger, 139 fly tapt (2.7%), 16 delagt i krasj. Av spesiell interesse Gjennomfrte flere bomberaid enn noen annen Halifax skvadron. Slapp Bomber Commands frste 8000-lb bombe over Essen, 10/11 april 1942. Mannskap tapt: 787 drept i kamp eller dde av skader, 278 krigsfanger, 27 som klarte flykte.

Where are they remembered ?Alex Vast majority of Norwegians were repatriated to Norway and handed over to their family so even the Norwegian War Graves Service can't tell you where they are buried. 15 remain in CWGC graveyards, mostly were lost with the Norwegian squadrons but I have found Gustav <span style="background:yellow">Dietrichson</span> lost with 622 Squadron on 20/04/1945 in Durnbach and Leif Eric Woodrow Hulthin lost with 76 Squadron on 22/10/1943 buried in Hanover Cemetery. ....Read More.John Larder on 28th February 2018 09:11:28
