From Tiana Walker Adiar (daughter of FlgOff L.A.Walker):

My dad was aboard this kite when it was shot down on 22/12/44 near Winterspelt, Germany. 

NP 975 (H-How), one of fifty-nine serials (NP 930 - NP 999), was an English Electric aircraft, which had been delivered new to No. 466 Squadron in September 1944. After receiving extensive damage while on a raid to Bochum on October 09, she was out of service undergoing repairs until her final operation to Bingen Germany, on December 22. 

On that night, NP 975 took off from RAF Driffield at 15.15, bombed Bingen at 18.40, and was shot down by a Ju 88 at 1910. It crashed near Winterspelt, Germany, approximately four minutes later. The pilot, Ronald Feilberg, was KIA, the remainder of the crew became POWs.
