Narrative:
Fifteen aircraft (nine of 141 and six of 239 Sqn) 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 'Z' and 239 Sqn Mosquito 'HB-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.
