Lloyd was a bomb aimer with 460 Squadron. His regular skipper was W/O Watson but I have been led to believe that Lloyd took part in the Pennemunde raid with another crew. I am seeking confirmation of this and would like to know with whom he flew that operation. If there is anyone around who knew Lloyd I would be interested in hearing from them.

Regards. Doug Robinson

Hi Peter.

I am still trying to locate any of the crew with whom my cousin, Charles Lloyd Robinson flew on the above mentioned raid. I know his regular crew did not participate but Lloyd himself told me that he was on that raid immediately before he came on leave to visit my parents in August, 1943.

Regards,
Doug Robinson.

Hello Peter.

My name is Douglas Robinson and I reside in Ontario, Canada. I hope you receive this e-mail as it seems the others I have sent you have not reached you. I am looking for an answer to a question that has evaded me for years, I will try to make this short and sweet but I think a little background is required.

Lloyd was a born Australian, my first cousin. We only met once and that was when he was on leave and visited my parents in the summer of 1943. This was the first time he had ever met any of his kin folk in the U.K. and only stayed with us for two or three days as he had to meet other branches of the family. At this time I myself was waiting for call up to the R.A.F. having been accepted for air crew training as a flight engineer.

I took an instant liking to Lloyd and listened intently to all he had to say. I distinctly remember him telling me that a couple of nights previous to him visiting us he had taken part in the raid on Peenemunde.

I have tried to research Lloyds service career and I find that his regular crew did not take part in that raid, this leads me to the conclusion that he must have flown with a different crew and try as I might I cannot find out which crew that was. My question to you is, "Can you help me in any way to find the answer I am looking for."

Thank you for your time and for a very interesting web page.

Sincerely.
Doug Robinson.

 


 

The following information is from John Watson's "460 Squadron (RAAF) Pilots and Crews" list.

 

W09 Watson W A - 1943           To 7 Sqn                    (See S06) 6 Ops
--------------
(E) Hedges R E
(B) Robinson C L
(N) Waterman W M
(W) Butterworth J
(G) Betts R
(G) Mc Wha R D
              5

This seems to indicate that C.L. Robinson only did 5 Operations with W. A. Watson.

 

Can anyone help me with more information?

 

I need your help
