Pragersko 20/3/45 This is the operational photo of the raid on Pragersko 20/3/45 by aircraft G piloted by F/O HAMERSLEY of the R.A.A.F.. The bomb aimer Sgt ACKERMAN was not our regular but doing one as stand in for our bomb aimer who had broken his wrist celebrating our first op!!!! The following night we flew in the same aircraft to Novska and on our return the generator used to maintain the brakes during taxying packed up and the pilot had to run into an emergency water supply to avoid running into another Lib in front of us. So far as I know the aircraft never flew again. Photo & Text Courtesy of Alan Chattwood.
