69 years ago!
I am posting this article I wrote before once more.
This is what happened on December 12, 1944. The information is taken from the ORB of 23 Squadron.
I don’t have the logbook page to go with it. If I get it one day, I will add it here.
Flying Officer J.A.E. Gagnon and Flying Officer R.C. Harris took off at 17h56 for Twente, in Holland, probably to attack the airfield.
Twente. Unable to complete patrol owing to inability to pinpoint through rain storms and very thick haze. Visibility poor. Brought bombs back owing to lack of targets.
A fun ride… that lasted 1 hour and 50 minutes in rain and haze.
What more does the ORB has for December 12, 1944?
A fight between a pig and a dog!
It’s a pity we have no pictures…
