The last day of the year, December 31st, 1944 – and the Royal Air Force extends New Year’s Greetings to Berlin when 71 Mosquitos drop their bombs on Berlin around 18:55 hrs. They are early enough to be back for the celebrations by midnight.
Pilots of No. 571 Sqn. are reporting two night fighter attacks – one is the crew F/O Wagner and F/SGT Lewis, the other crew is F/O Higgins and F/O Green. There are no reports on any battle damage received – it appears as if the raiders can evade and return home undamaged.
