Wellington R1516 of 311 (Czech) Squadron Friendly Fire
This Wellington crashed at Lower Mere Park Farm on July 2nd 1941. At the time it was believed that it was shot down by a 'Friendly Fighter'. on return from a 'Freshman' operation. The Air 81 is vague about the cause, but hints that there was no other aircraft involved. Can it be confirmed that W/Cdr C.H Appleton DSO DFC C/O of 604 Squadron was responsible? What is the evidence?
