Ernest Alfred Deverill, who was lost due to fog on Black Thursday, 16/17 December 1943, survived many hazardous operations in his time but perhaps none more so than the Augsburg raid on 17 April 1942.

Tales from the Archive this month will be on the Augsburg raid and the RAF’s PR war.

There is a commemoration for this raid taking place in Leicester in 11 days time.
