Re: Attack on RAF Chedburgh


Bowyer on page 287 of "Air Raid" has the following -

"A raider being chased was ever likely to jettison its load, as happened over Chedburgh at 21.17 on 12 October. Five HEs were dropped when Flight Lieutenant Allan of 68 Squadron in a Beaufighter fired at the enemy which unloaded fourteen 50 Kg SCs at Whepstead, damaging five houses. The bomber escaped - only to be again engaged by Flying Officer Boyle, in a Mosquito of 151 Squadron (Coltishall Detachment) who shot the aircraft (likely to have been of III./KG 6) into the Wash."

However, The Blitz Then and Now V3 does not mention a loss on 12 Oct 1943.
Best Regards
