Re: Lost Hudson Bomber found - RAAF

Thanks for that, Ed. Do they have any idea of what happened to the crew?

The "cannon shells were still in their original clips" passage is interesting since I don't recall that the export Hudson carried anything larger than .303s.

Thanks for the follow-on, Ed. Very interesting comments that answer my questions completely.

But, I didn't think that the Japanese had made it that far south by February 1942.

Thanks again, Ed,
George
