    Hi,
    Just thought I'd pass these along in the hope that they might help in some way in the design of the Wellington. Before anyone asks, they are genuine recordings.

    A longer version of the Berlin raid may be obtained here: http://rapidshare.de/files/23589659/...homas.mp3.html

    The details for the Berlin raid are as follows:
    The crew involved was that of Flt Lt Ken Letford (later DSO DFC) of 207 Sqdn.

    The full crew were:

    Ken Letford
    Charlie Stewart
    Bill Bray
    Jock Fieldhouse
    Con Connelly
    Bill Sparkes
    Henry Devenish

    The 3rd September recording (made in Lancaster ED586 EM-F) over Berlin was made with BBC engineer Reg Pidsley and correspondent Wynford Vaughan-Thomas. Here's how they did it: http://www.btinternet.com/~roger.beckwith/bh/repwar/wr_action.htm
    Here's Pidsley and Vaughan-Thomas in front of F-Freddie before leaving on the raid: http://www.btinternet.com/~roger.beckwith/bh/repwar/wr_intro.htm

    Henry Devenish was credited with the destruction of a German nightfighter, as heard in the recording.
    A photo of Letford appears in Falconers' 'Bomber Command Handbook'.

    F-Freddy's history may be found here: http://www.lostbombers.co.uk/bomber.php?id=2413

    I don't know who the Bf110 crew were but believe them to have been from NJG 3. Can anyone help?

    Both the Essen and Stettin raids were recorded in OL-T for Tommy. The details of the Essen raid are to be found here: http://www.bbc.co.uk/ww2peopleswar/s...a7719078.shtml
    Those of you visiting or living in London can visit RAF Hendon and see portraits of WgCo Shaw and S/Lr. Dunk as well as see one of the Lancasters they flew. Read parts one and two of this also. Facinating!
    T-Tommy was ED601 and her fate can found here: http://www.lostbombers.co.uk/bomber.php?id=2414

    So far, I have not been able to find out anything about the Stettin crew but beieve the aircraft involved to have been T-Tommy. Any help from anyone with an identity for the crew?
