Narrative:
Fifteen aircraft (nine of 141 and six of 239) were detailed, but only ten (five from each squadron) took-off in support of the bomber offensive against Dusseldorf and Brunswick. Three (239 'A', 'B' and 'H' were detailed for the former target, and seven (238 'G' & 'F', 141 'H', 'U', 'Z', 'P', & 'R') for the latter. Of these 141 Sqn Mosquito DZ726 'TW-Z' and 239 'G' returned early, one with engine trouble, and the latter because of excessive vibration at 20,000ft plus the collapse of the fuselage tank. The remaining eight completed their respective sorties.
