Thanks so much for the information. I have a couple of questions if I may?
- What source are you using for your information?
- Does the source offer any more information regarding the cargo being carried?
After the recent success in identifying a convoy on my other thread, I thought I would try my luck again. If any kind member could help me I would be very grateful. Not only does it help me personally, it also helps fill in the gaps of my ancestors rather short life, him losing it at 22...
Thank you for taking the time to look into it. Its a bit of a mystery isn't it. I looked at my other sources - Casualty reports, post incident reports etc and all have the same date of the 17/18th September.
Do you have any further details on the 3 MV's and 2 TP's that left Suda for...
Hmmm, a tricky one. The Operations Record Book is very reliable when it comes to dates, as is the information contained as it was provided and cross referenced by the crew that participated in the attack. I have attached the entry for the 17/18th September 1942 below for you to...

Apologies for my late reply.
My Great Uncle, a Rear Gunner with 221 Squadron was killed on the 2nd February 1943. His Wellington Bomber, HX398 took off from Luqa on an operation to find Italian and German Radar frequencies off the coast of Italy. It seems that during the sortie, they...
Being a new member here I thought I would introduce myself.
For the last 15 years I have been researching my Great Uncles career in the RAF. Many years ago I was able to find a number of records in Italian archives detailing the incident in which my Uncle was killed; he was shot down...
