I have 45 Sqdn V5438 shot down over Cyrenaica on 18 April during a mission on Bardia and El Adem, with all crew killed.


All the best

Yes the only one. No loss on 19 April.

All RAF.


No. 204 Group diary notes they were supposed to attack Derna L.G. but due to low cloud over the target diverted to attack motor transport at Acroma with bombs and machine guns. Attack was considered successful including an ammunition column blowing up for 15 minutes.



All the best
