37 27/12/44 Rheydt HK572, F/O Davies & crew, en route to the target at 12.58hrs, experienced an engine fire in the starboard-outer while at 5,000ft. Appropriate action was taken to shut down the engine and feather the prop. They then continued to the target, but were unable to climb above 11,000ft. They had to cut corners along planned track, but still bombed last. At 14.46hrs, they came under attack from a FW190 but after firing off an ‘SOS’ Verey cartridge, a U S Air Force Lightning fighter intervened and drove off the attacker. AA-H F/O Davies 05:05
