On January 14th, 1945, the Royal Air Force flies the next Mosquito attack on Berlin – this time, the attack turns into disaster: of the 83 Mosquitos attacking, 8 will not return home. Three of the Mosquitos are lost over Belgium, 5 more are lost over own territory due to bad weather in England.
No. 139 Squadron is losing two Mosquitos – both are lost over own territory:
Despite so many Mosquitos lost during this night, none of them is lost to enemy action. Which is important with respect to the already mentioned teletype of January 15th, 1945, which is crediting Kurt Welter with two Mosquitos for this very night.
