The following was provided by Mr. Colin Murray - http://lightnings.info :
In Stewart Scott's book "English Electric Lightning Volume 2 - the Lightning Force", page 372 - 23 Sqn history :
Sqn Ldr Ed Durham writes : "Just over two weeks later I led a detachment of four aircraft to Soesterberg for the weekend of July 19-23. Frank Pieri, Mike Donaldson and "Scruph" Oliver were the other pilots. Unfortunately, two of the days were spent trying to sort out a hydraulic leak in the missile pack of one of the aircraft - difficult on a Saturday and Sunday in Holland. The missiles were removed by hand and arm because we had no specialist equipment."
Obviously the aircraft was XS936 - see movement reports for 23 and 24 July.
