Hi can anybody help with the following.

Looking for the identitities of 2 JU88's lost whilst laying mines in the entrance of Volos harbour 11.4.41, i think one of these may have been claimed by Sqd ldr Pattle?
Im particularly keen to establish the werk nummer's of these a/c

Any help gratefully accepted.

Rgs,
Steve.

Hi Jim,
Many thanks for the info, very grateful.

I indeed checked the JU88 Med file you provided, unfortunately i couldn't find these 2 babies! which was strange, as they were featured in Shores Air War over Yugoslavia, Greece and Crete, and other losses from this campaign were detailed on your loss file!

Best regards,
Steve.

Oh, I know why.....I did a query by date range and location Malta or Mittelmeer - these two say Greece!
