Re:5th ERS North Sea rescue mission 20 March 1945
Book Flying Cats has following story as 3/21/45.
5th ERS Pilot 2LT. Donald Combs , Flying Catalina
" Team Work 72 " was ordered to rescue a downed
Walrus Crew. He found them and picked up the 3
Crewmen. Trying to take off , the Cat was damaged
and couldn't get Airborne. They were drifting toward
Enemy Coast so Combs started Taxiing. After 2 Hours
He stopped and dropped Anchor. The Walrus Crew was
transferred to another Craft. Combs managed to take
off and returned to Base.
This may / may not be the one you want , just thought I'd
Post it in case it is.
