Superb fully researched Air Crew Europe Medal Group to a 76 Squadron Halifax pilot who was shot down and taken prisoner on the Nuremberg Raid of 30/3/1944. Medals are original issue and rarely for WW2 medals were engraved by the pilot. In addition to the medals there are several pages of research and a copy of Martin Middlebrook’s book on the Nuremberg Raid in which the pilot is mentioned several times. F/Lt Henry “Roger” Coverley was a pilot with 76 Squadron flying Handley Page Halifax III aircraft. He even had his own plane with his personal nose art (see photo, note: this photo is not included in the group, it is scanned from a book). Flying Halifax LK795 MP-P on the infamous Nuremberg Raid the aircraft was shot down by a Me110 and crashed near the town of Hamm. All the crew survived apart from Sgt Mott who was killed, despite attempts to evade capture they were all taken prisoner. Coverley was a POW at Stalag Luft 1. He survived the war and was awarded the Air Crew Europe Star along with the standard WW2 service medals. Interestingly, and rare for WW2 medals, he had them all engraved with his rank and name and service number. The engravings are correct for the period. Later he was featured in several Bomber Command books such as Middlebrook’s Nuremberg Raid, Nichol’s The Red Line and Simpson’s excellent Ops, Victory at all Costs. With his contributions and being named in so many key books they all add to the research value of his service and medals. Please see photos for details, medals are in good order, not cleaned. ACE is of course 100% genuine as can be seen. A really nice and rarer ACE grouping.

From 15 November 1941 to 20 June 1942 Adams took part in 26 sorties with Cochrane as pilot including a raid on Hamburg on 30 November 1941, when their aircraft was attacked over target area by a HE 113, attack came at the rear of the aircraft but the attacker was hit with 300 round burst from Wellington front gunner as he exited from his attack.

The pilot dived the aircraft right and down to 4,000 feet to shake off the attack.
