    Default 619 Squadron Lancaster LL808, lost 21-22 June 1944 Wesseling raid

    Dear all,

    I am looking for details of the Time over Target of 619 Squadron during the 21-22 June 1944 Wesseling raid. Reason for asking is that I've found out that one of the 619 Squadron losses on his raid, Lancaster LL808, was reportedly shot down by a night fighter near Aachen some 15 minutes before bombing and need to know the approximate time of the crash. Any details on the actual crash location of this 'heavy' also very welcome!

    Cheers, Theo

    Hello Theo, my father-in-law FS Eric H Tranter was the navigator on this aircraft and isn’t mentioned in the crew list above. I have a full account, taken from his well written Wartime Log if you are still interested. I appreciate it’s quite a few years since you posted the query. Cheers, Steve Lake.

    Hello Steve,

    Doing research on G/C J R Jeudwine, who have been C/O of 619 Sq until May 44, do you know if his name appears in the log of your father in law ??

    Thank you !

    Alain
