467 Postblog LIX: Wednesday 19 April, 1944

Nothing doing today – 467 Squadron Operational Record Book, 19 April 1944

Which summed it up, really. Nothing of any note whatsoever occurred at Waddington on Wednesday. Some 463 Squadron crews took part in some fighter affiliation exercises in the afternoon but apart from that there was no flying. No other Bomber Command units operated tonight either – even the leaflet-droppers got the night off.
