My great Uncle F/O John Leahy Tully was killed in spitfire AA800 30 July 1942 while on a PRU mission to the Bergen area. He was shot down by Lt Helmuth Lepper in a FW-190A-3 from 3./JG5 based at Herdla. His spitfire was witnessed crashing into the sea just west of Manstein Lighthouse

Do you have his log book?

I have a photographed copy of it. I can show you the last page which has the mission. I also have been to Kew and checked the No1 PRU ORB. I also have several pictures of him
