Schifferer crew

 

NOTE: According to Clifford Thompson in MM, March 1989, p. 9, he was tail gunner on this crew and in early 1945 shot down a V-1 buzz bomb. "Weather was closing in over England and we headed individually to form over France. A buzz bomb missed us overhead by about 100 feet. I got it in my sights, nailed it, and it exploded. Jack mentioned it on debriefing and, after checking, the Admiralty confirmed time and place."
