Attached is a draft map of R.A.F. Bomber Command losses and Nachtjägd Abslusse claims for the night of the 16th/17th March 1945, during the combined attacks on
Nürnberg and Würzburg.

Sources for data were:

Koch's KTB of NJG 6
Chorley's Bomber Command Losses Vol. 6
Various other publications and documents
Privately supplied crash site map (from Luftwaffe Source)
Privately supplied claims list (from Luftwaffe source)

Members of this board (they know who they are!)

Anyway feedback would be welcome...

Rod,

IMHO this is an excellent piece of research which must have taken some work to collect the data. It is rare that such connections are made between the BC campaign and
the Nightfighter defence. Two sides of the same coin.

I am trying to do the same for the Berlin raid of 15/16th February 1944 when my father was lwt over the Baltic piloting a Halifax. I am using secondary sources of course but
I have quite a bit of info already. The trick is to put the two sides together.

AHB did send me a map showing the positions of NF attacks as reported by surviving crews in combat reports. These attacks could show routes of NFs making multiple
attacks.

Any help you can give me would be greatly appreciated.

Regards,

Simon

I was quite intrigued by both the sources Rod Mackenzie had used and the superb map that he was able to create as a result. Unfortunately, the map, which he did show on 12 O'clock High!, is not reproduced here. In glorious color, Rod showed every R.A.F. loss juxtapositioned with every Luftwaffe claim. It is truly a beautifully done bit of research.

For the subsequent development of this thread, where Rod reveals his resources for his information, the reader is referred to the topic of the same name under the "References and Reference Materials" forum.

Regards,
Richard
