Langley, I did mention that above.....'The fact is that the mosquito ,even in the LNSF, was seen more as a nuisance, depriving sleep to the population and keeping the defences alert.' Don't forget it was Speer, who said the real success of the offensive, was the resources needed to fight it. A million men tied up who could have been used on the Russian front and the thousands of 88s that would have also been sorely needed. Gentlemen I am not here to score points, but to just tell you as I see it. Everyone has their own theory and I respect that, even if I don't agree.
