I'm trying to do some research on my local area - the Teme Valley in the Welsh Marches. The Teme Valley appears to have been part of a sort of rat run to Manchester and Liverpool for German bombers and I can find evidence of a lot of sightings. Also there were a lot of AA and Searchlight units in the area and of course a radar station on Clee Hill (which is still there - I can see the modern dome from my back garden). I have heard suggestions that at one time Defiant IIs were used over the area in the night fighter role but I can find no concrete evidence. The only account I can find of night fighter activity involves a Mosquito that brought down a German bomber near Malvern. A Ju 88 did come down on Clee Hill but that appears to have been through a navigational error. Does anyone know anything relevant?
