The well known rescue of a 422 RCAF Sunderland crew which took palce in Sept. 43 in Biscay. A friend gave me a book a few days ago "Shot Down in The Drink" published by the National Archives - I hoped that this crew would be mentioned in it. The photos are from this book. No mean fete to put down on the open sea and to get off again. The 228 crew which preformed the rescue crashed in jan 44 on the Bluestack Mountains in Donegal - they had been diverted to castle Archdale - same base from which the crew they had rescued had departed from a few months earlier. They hit high ground there , several crew members being killed. This report tells something of the story behind the photos , which lok perhaps unremarkable , no shot or shell but a dangerous position to be in , certainly not one without risk , getting of safely was not by any manner assured or to be taken for granted. The report I culled from 422's ORB several years ago. Some parts of DW110 - whioch I think was the same aircraft which picked the 422 crew up , where they came to rest on the Bluestacks in Jan 44.
