    Does anyone have any photos of Bristol Blenheim IV, P4850, PZ-V, 53 Sqn 1941, or any aircraft in 53 Sqn at that time please?

    My great uncle was the navigator of this aircraft when it was lost during an attack on the Admiral Hipper on 11th March 1941. Unfortunately the crew were lost too.

    This is all the information we have so if anyone can shed anymore light on this incident or has any photos of the aircraft concerned it would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks. :)
