On 23 March 1945 a strike force of forty two Mosquitos and Twelve Mustangs attacked shipping at Stadlandet, Aslesund and Dalsfjord in Norway.
Mosquito "W" of 235 Squadron (based at RAF Banff) attacked shipping in Dalsfjord, and was seen to crash into the sea. Flying Officer Turner is buried in Trondheim (Stavne) Cemetery in Norway, and a plaque was erected near his grave in memory of Squadron Leader Reid, whose body was not recovered.
