Posted in 6/43 and out 6/43 wounded in action

 

14/15 June, 1943: OBERHAUSEN:

An all Lancaster force of 197, guided by 6 Oboe Mossies made an successful attack on Oberhausen. Despite the target being cloud-covered, accurate sky-marking enabled the bombers to do considerable damage.

F/O Thomas (ED438):

"During our run into the target, the starboard side of the cockpit was hit by heavy flak seriously wounding the flight engineer, Sgt J. Dryne."

With their sortie completed the crew returned safely to base with the wounded crew member.

Records show that this was Sgt Dryne's first operation.
