Details

Raid carried out from Graveley against Gelsenkirchen

1x4000 HC. 5x1000. 2x500. 19.03 hours. 18000 feet. 352 T. 155 knots. 10/10ths strata cumulus, tops 2000 feet. Identified by red and green target indicators. G.P.I. was unservicable so ran up and bombed on target indicators. Several reds went down and were very close – green target indicator was seen to cascade at approximately 19.01 which fell slightly south east of reds. The latter were almost out and obscured by smoke at time of release so aimed at green.
