|Losses 2 Jan 1943 19430102||Hi All
Having plodded through the A-B series trying to tie aircraft losses to my casualty lists, I now have a few queries I'm hoping someone can help with
Flt Sgt COUTTS, GEORGE ALEC (1375929) RAFVR; age: 29
Sgt GREENSHIELDS, EDWARD FALCONER (1271061) RAFVR; age: 21
Flt Sgt MALLINSON, JAMES ROBIN DFM (1289028) RAFVR; age: 22
The above were with 242 Sqn and I've identified two losses that day, Spitfire VBs, ER592, ER913 but not the third, does anyone know the tird and which pilot was flying in which?
Fg Off FINN, ROBERT CYRIL DFM (80212) RAFVR; age: 27 was killed flying a Hurricane of No 615 Sqn, possibly HV849?
