    Hi

    I am researching a relative of mine who was K.I.A 25/26th July 1943. He is F/S Edward Kenneth White 'Eddie' R.C.A.F 405 Squadron. I know when and where they were shot down and which mission they were on. I also know they took off from Gransden Lodge, but I would really like to know how I could find out what missions he flew before he was killed. Also it would be great to find out who was flying the German night fighter.

    I would really appreciate any help that you can offer

    Many Thanks

    Did you see how this thread developed?

    My post explains the claim made by the nightfighter pilot concerned, Paul Zorner. He survived the war though I don't know if he is still living.

    Cheers
    Steve

    Edit. Zorner's memoir "Nachte Im Bomberstrom" was published in 2007. I've been trying to find out if an english translation is available but as far as I can tell it is only available in german and finnish.
