    I have some friends who are researching and trying to find the wreckage of F/Lt Watt's mustang IV. He was shot down on april 7, 1945 when the british bombed the ship Oldenburg near Sogn/Hyllestad ( 61.15, 16.00 ), Norway. he was shot down by a 190 ( JG5 ? ) flown by Walter Opitz ( or Opiz )...who was then shot down himself during that battle. if you have anything in your files it would be appreciated.

    Can't promise, but I can try to get in touch with someone I know who was a pilot on 65 Sqn at the time - if he's still with us.

    I've written to his last known address, but I last heard from him in 1996, so keeping my fingers crossed!
