Default Audio of Lancaster Under nightfighter attack

This has been posted before but there has been some debate as to its
authenticity.

Its authenticity is now proved beyond doubt

Reg Pidsley (left) with Wynford Vaughan Thomas in front of Lancaster F for
Freddie of 207 Squadron prior to flying on a Berlin raid, 3rd September
1943. Reg recorded the voices of the crew during the flight. He later
commented that when the bombs were released, "it was like going up in a
lift" and the cutting head dug into the disc.
