1st Dec. 1943 - Who damaged a Ju 88 ?

Hello,

On 1st of December 1943, an "allied aircraft" (probably from RAF) damaged a Ju 88 D-1 at the point 14 W 486 (Luftwaffe grid). The Ju 88 could go back to its base, but a crewman was killed and an other was wounded

Which was this "allied aircraft" ?

Thank you in advance

Pierre BABIN

Salut Pierre,

The 157 Sqn claimed three Ju 88 in late morning and Typhoons from 193 and 266 two other at noon.

Regards,
Michal

Hi Pierre:

Chris Goss' excellent "Bloody Biscay" says this aircraft was damaged by Typhoons.

Cheers,

Mark

Thanks to Michal, edNorth and Mark

Hello,

Thanks to you, guys, for your replies.

To edNorth : I have neither the code, nor the werknummer of the the Ju 88 ... and I would wish, too, to get them ! I'm specially interested with the Wekusta 2 which operated in West of France from July 1940 to August 1944 ... a very "french carreer" !

To Mark : I have, now, the Chris GOSS' "Bloody Biscay" book ... and I agree with you Mark : it's a remarkable book ! (congratulations and thanks to Chris ... if he reads this message !)

Au revoir

Pierre
