My name is Jacob Lessmann. I am 15 years old and had the opportunity to work in Military Heraldry & Technology section for a week.
On the night of 16/17 April 1945, Halifax MZ467 of 462 Squadron, RAAF, embarked from the RAF base at Foulsham, UK at 2358 hours [11:58pm] to carry out a flight over Augsburg, Germany. Ten aircraft from the squadron took part in the mission and of these only MZ467 did not return. Six of the aircraft took part in a feint window attack on Augsburg and the other four operated with the main force.
