Annex “E” Corres K.M. Hunter RAF Museum Hendon
Annex “F” Extract. 192 SQN – janes’s
Annex “G” Extract RAF F1180 (ARC)
Annex “H” I have the original A-M Photo’s which were duplicated, kept by my Father. I regret my copies cant do justice; these are 150% of the originals. Hendon were sent copies in 1985. There was interest in Phot [sic] 4, note the Browning machine gun *barrel extending from the tail of the MOZZY. This was not an Air Ministry approved modification but a local initiative of the servicing F/Sgt. Hendon were aware that it was done but had no evidence of it until they received this Photo. The Mosquitos of 192 counter measures were Packed full of radios so the 4 front filling guns were removed. Some straight and level flight was necessary to operate the radios and German night fighters were active. The rear firing browning was their only defence from attack from behind. you can see a radio set fallen on the ground in front of the Mozzy.
This was a remarkable incident and must be very unusual to have been fully illustrated and documented to have come to light some time after the event. over to you. I thought if not already archived you might care to know about it.
