BERLIN 1939-1945 WAR CEMETERY, 8. Z. 9. ww2talk.com/forums/topic/36814-help-with-102-sqn-halifax/
From various sources I know that 102 Sqn were operating the Halifax at this time and that the date of death coincides with a raid to Leipzig (3/4 December 1943) in which 15 Halifaxes were lost. ww2talk.com/forums/topic/36814-help-with-102-sqn-halifax/ Chris Goss wrote a history of 102 Squadron called : It’s Suicide but It’s Fun, The Story of 102 (Ceylon) Squadron 1917-1956
The rear of the book contains an appendix of losses where we find this information:
3 Dec 1943 Halifax JD303 DY-S Leipzig Crashed at Luederitz, Germany
