    look at your posting asking for information on the other thread you posted on. it was not directly pointed to me, i just gave you a response you may be interested in. pasted for your convenience

    welcome aboard

    what was the serial number - code of the Lancaster as I have a report of a loss of a 195th sqd lanc NG 186 shot down by a LW night fitghter by Georg Drünkler flying a Ju 88G-6 around 22.30 hrs

    E ~ more information please if possible on the aircraft and flight near Dessau

    I must also edit my above posting now : as yes the same Lancaster claimed but also a possiblity that it also could of been shot down by my freind Peter Spoden at 22.29 hrs 50-60km S.W. of Dessau also flying a Ju 88G-6.

    looks like the SS evidently captured or the 6 crewmen were turned over to them and the SS had them executed.........

    Lancaster I NG 186 A4-0 code

    crashed near Büttstadt or Sömmerda depending on findings in report(s).

    would you have any file on this please. we have a record which says the lancaster crew bailed out apart from two crew members who went down with the plane. i have been researching this for a couple of weeks and i have some small amounts of info on the incident, but some of the info seems to contradict one or the other. i have applied for some official records from the ministry of defence but i was informed this may take a couple of weeks , or upto a month, but we will receive them as my wife is next of kin ( related )

    There's also a UK-based organisation called the Airfield Research Group; a look on their web-site might bring up something. Meanwhile, i'll see what I've got, if anything. Was their any particular squadron you were interested in, as pics of the aircraft are far more common than the airfields themselves.

    I am combining the three threads that you started on this same topic within the last few weeks. They are all are asking for information on the same topic. There only needs to be one thread and not three of them...

    I do hope you get the help you are looking for though.
