    Who! Harrowing, Horrible. (And by that I mean the full French inflexion for that word.)

    Gasp!

    Would you be able to provide any information about the Elbing class destroyer and / or Crew?
    - beached at Isle Vierge, Brittany?

    Tnx!

    Hi Fred,
    Do you have the loss report for NE923/G? My Great Uncle, Sub Lt Les Hayward was the pilot of this Swordfish and I have lots of info about the mission that 838 Sqn undertook to finish off the destroyer but I've never seen the loss report. If you have any info on this I'd be mightily grateful!
    Regards
    Wilesy
