Original Bomber Command combat report pro-forma filled out by New Zealand pilot, Flying Officer Kitto, of 106 Squadron for a sortie undertaken on 28/29th July 1944.  The target was Stuttgart and the aircraft a Lancaster III, serial number 'F' IM215.  During the sortie they were attacked by a Focke Wulf 190.  The enemy aircraft, spotted by rear gunner Sgt. Pollard, did not engage but Pollard fired 50 rounds.  No claim was made.  The combat report is a top copy filled out by hand in black ink.  This is an unusual report as Bomber Command combat reports rarely turn up.  Printed on thin economy paper.  Some creasing and age related wear.  Comes with handwritten notes relating to the rear gunner (Pollard) who did a full tour with Kitto.  Stock code P23509.
