Thanks, glad you like it.

It needs the potted history of Bomber Command to be brought up to mid-1943 to be complete.

If readers don't know, on wiki, you click on "preferences" at the top of the page, click "gadgets", roll down to "appearance" and 2/3 the way down tick "Display an assessment of an article's quality in its page header (documentation)" and save. The classification then shows by colour-coding the title; B class is green.

B now but I can't cite the two German captains as I don't have a source; I've blanked then for the moment.

My editing has stalled somewhat due to a Covid -19 scare so I'm quarantined while waiting on the test results.

Glad you are ok, my niece who is an ITU nurse tells me it is a really horrible illness if you are one of those who it affects badly, although many get it and do not even notice. Better not to get it at all if possible though obviously!

Thanks Terry, considering that I see about 2,600 people a day, it pays to be cautious.

Does anyone have a copy? I'm looking for a page number for the loss of two Martin Marylands in the East African campaign.

Did anyone else get a sudden life ban the other day? Somewhat surprising, I'm not always that insightful but I can usually tell when I've shat the bed. ;O)
