Could someone tell me the most likely route the Halifax Squadrons of 4 Group would have flown on the Trappes (West of Paris) Operation of 2-3 June 1944. Thank you

Norman, my trip to Trappes was on March 6th of 1944 so I don't which route your Dad took. As I remember, it was almost due south nearly over London, but you would have to ask my Navigator, Sid Philp. Or my Pilot, Eric Hamber. But I think both have gone onto their next lives.

All I know was that I got the Target Photo that night.
