Bochum bomb strike, 12-13 June 1943

503 aircraft - 323 Lancasters, 167 Halifaxes, 11 Mosquitos to Bochum.



This raid took place over a completely cloud-covered target but accurate Oboe skymarking enabled the all Lancaster/Halifax Main Force to cause severe damage to the centre of Bochum. 14 Lancasters and 10 Halifaxes lost, 4.8 per cent of the force.
