Checking my own sources (second hand of course) I have Norman Franks saying 130 Sq was on a Circus when the two pilots were lost, but in his book about Circus missions on the 21st he make no mention of any 130 Sq escort.

Foreman states 130 Sq was on a Roadstead which makes absolutely no sense with the details you provide.

I can think of a Ramrod mission which I believe closely resembled the Circus jobs. Any idea? Can you or anyone else also say what was the difference between a Ramrod and a Circus mission?

Hello Stig

Sorry for the delay in getting back to you - as per my piece, the raid information was courtesy of Hans Nauta, and the information on Pickstone comes from his son. I also have to agree with Chris Goss "There are countless errors in the Losses book so this does not surprise me"

cheers

Allan

hello Faenor

I note that on this photo it states "Jagd-Flugzeug PJ-N aus England 1941 in Holland notgelandet.jpg" so, once again, not Alderney, if accurate !!

cheers
