Dobson & Miller 248 Sqn 12Aug44

As I near completion of chapter on Bill Sise a few loose ends:

Dobson and Miller ditched off Brest, Miller was rescued by the Royal Navy.

On the ORB it makes reference to "Naval Escort Group" then, "Force 28", also "Escort Group 3" . . . unfortunately Millers DFC citation make no reference either.

Just trying to get the name of the vessel that pick him up.

Any help appreciated

Andy Bird

The British Admiralty War Diary for 12 August 1944 starts here in fold3:
https://www.fold3.com/image/1/301325052

A short extract:
"The watch on the North Biscay coast was maintained today by force 28 (Diadem, Onslow and Piorun) assisted by E.G. 3, E.G.11, E.G.12 and aircraft."

A quick scan of the more detailled pages for Biscay operations (around page 795) shows no mention of rescued airman, such event will probably not been recorded in a diary of this (worldwide) level.
