Flying Officer Jack Carter and his Lancaster KB760, NA-P for “Panic” – PDF Version

Flying Officer Jack Carter and his Lancaster KB760

Note

Typo

F/O Nicholl-Carke J27904, in Lancaster Mk. X, code “L”, serial KB725, on 3 July 1944.

It should be

F/O Carter flew his first operation as “Second Dickey” to F/O Nicholl-Carne J27904, in Lancaster Mk. X, code “L”, serial KB725, on 3 July 1944.

    The photos, the nose art, log books, PO Jack Carter, the Ghost, with the added attraction of WWII humor all wrapped up in the history – this research is amazing!

    My father (Harold W Walker) was posted to the 428 in Aug 1944 and pilot of KB760/NA-P on several occasions. In his log book he makes reference of the following sorties regarding KB760/NA-P:
    Aug 25/44 Russelheim (2 holes OK)
    Aug 27/44 Return from diversion
    Aug 29/44 Stettin (1 hole good trip)

    His primary “Lanc” was KB763/NA-S “Sugar” or “Sweet Sugar” and it was Nov 4/44 sortie that his rear gunner, Benjamin “Bennie” “Jet” Rakus shot down a German Me163.

    From Clarence…

    Wonderful. Please ask if he has any photos to add?
    I would like to know his feelings, on his father’s Lancaster being painted incorrectly for fifty years?

    Very interesting. I don’t know how I found this, but in the quote
    « F/O Carter flew his first operation as “Second Dickey” to F/O Nichool-Carke J27904, in Lancaster Mk. X, code “L”, serial KB725, on 3 July 1944 »
    I believe he refers to my father F/O T Nicholl-Carne #J27904 but is misspelled. He flew Lancasters with 428 squadron in 1944.

    Thanks.

      I have made the correction to the PDF article and corrected the Word version which was easier. Feel free to share whatever you would like.

        Thanks, I never expected such a quick reply, but the correction is still spelled wrong.
        It should be « F/O Nicholl-Carne J27904 ».
        Anyway, lots of information on this site to read yet. Thanks again.

        Mike

        I have done the correction. I feel this is important to preserve the past correctly.
