Re: nightfighter M.Becker died

Hi,

You may all be interested to know that my relative was shot down by Martin Becker on the 14th/15th March 1945. I have researched my relatives story and have establised that Becker attacked him after he bombed the Lutzkendorf refinery. My relative was a pilot of a Lancaster bomber. He bailed out of the aircraft, only to die 3 days later from injuries recieved. I have sent a message to David advising him so he can get more details from me if he wishes.

best regards AaronNZ.

Re: nightfighter M.Becker died

Peter,

I am interested in your regards to Herbert of 227 Sqn, I have researched 227 squadron extensively as my relative flew with Herbert, and indeed they were both NZ pilots who were shot down over Germany. Sadly Ian Herbert sufferred a massive stroke last year, and Im not too sure if his health has improved since then. Happy to correspond with you further re this.

Best regards AaronNZ
PS I know Arthur Digger Arculas, a lovely man who helped me with my project.

Re: nightfighter M.Becker died

Aaron,

many thanks for your message. Give my best wishes to Jan Herbert. He is a fine gentleman who showed bravery and chivalry during this night-battle over Heilbronn. When finding his target, the railway-station, covered with clouds, he decided not to bomb and made another run for exact bombing.
I met his flight-engineer Jim Hudson after the war.

I have a lot of respect for Jan.

Peter
