June 19/20 th 1943 raid on Le Creusot


I am looking for information concening 51 Sqdn participation to the mentionned raid that was targeting Schneider's plant in Le Creusot area.

I know that the bomb dump in Snaith blew up prior to the bombing up of the plane an that armourers did their best to find ammo on other airfields.

I would be gratefull if anyone could provide me with more details or could help me in contacting someone that was part of the raid or of the station at this time.

I would be happy to share information on the "French" side of the raid if any of you is interested.

Best Regards.
