Third Mission: December 12, 1944

This is what happened on December 12, 1944. The information is taken from the ORB of 23 Squadron.

Flying Officer J.A.E. Gagnon and Flying Officer R.C. Harris took off at 1756 for Twente, Holland, probably to attack the airfield.

December 12 ORB Twente

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…

  1. Could anyone out there tell me if it is possible to find out names of pilots who flew the Mosquito and their squadrons? My father flew the Mosquito but I do not know what squadron he was in.
