ORB sheet Witten, 12/12/44

Extract from 1945 ORB for the raid on Witten, 12/12/45. Dad is not listed – he didn’t fly in the Squadron till 1/2/45.

Jim follows up Wayne’s post with a set of images from the 1944 ORB for the raid on Witten. Fascinatingly, the record of the raid notes that Vernon Zinzan landed heavily on return, resulting in the Air Bomber F/O Mesure sustaining a broken leg – I wonder if this was the start of a chain of events that resulted in Bob becoming the bomb aimer for Vernon’s crew?
