    On the night of 29th September 1943 my father Wally Smith flew as Engineer on a operation to Berlin.
    This was not with his normal crew but was with Wing Commander D M H Craven as pilot.
    I have the ORBs for his other 30 ops' but have no information on this one. Wally's log book shows the Lanc' that night to be ED 630 but that is shown as only having been with 61 squadron!
    Any information on this raid/Lanc' would be greatly appreciated
    By completing this Operation my father had done 30 ops whilst they had completed 29,so he went on to do 31 for his first tour! (see Home - raf-bombercommand)
