Re: British Second-Line Aircraft lost in France Sept. 1939 - June 1940.

Hallo Alain,

I believe you are correct about St. Philbert-de-Grand-Lieu being the landing site of W6424, as I have a copy of the 21 AD ORB also.

The Bombay. A year or two ago there were several photos on E-Bay of a Handley-Page Harrow abandoned in a damaged state on a French airfield (K6996, lost 20-6-1940). The Harrow was a bomber/transport with a fixed undercarriage which was very similar to the Bristol Bombay. I wonder was this the aircraft you saw ? The date of its loss must mean it - the Harrow - was abandoned on another airfield and not the Nantes area ?
