Day/Night raid Night
Operation Braunschweig. 379 aircraft, 27 losses (7.1%). This was an experimental raid with no PFF marking to determine how accurate an H2S only raid could be. The raid was not a success and bombing was very scattered. The local report classifies it as a heavy raid nonetheless.
Reason for Loss Shot down by a night-fighter, killing Sgt Craig. Crashed near Rinstein, Germany.
