V-1 kills by 66 Squadron

I read in "Tattered battlements" that SLdr HAS Johnston destroyed a V-1 in 19 June 1944, but did 66 score any other V-1 kills?

regards

Keith

Hi Keith

Checking that excellent account 'Diver, Diver, Diver', I can find no reference to a V1 claim by Johnstone or any other 66 Squadron pilot!

Perhaps the author missed that one?

Cheers
Brian

Interesting. According to Johnston it blew up!

Looking back in the forum archives it appears FLt Douglas Warren shot down a V-1 on 3 February 1945.

Hi Keith

Looks like the author of 'Diver, Diver, Diver' failed to check 66 Squadron's records!

Cheers
