|Search of identification - W/O R.J. Tavener||Hello,
W/O R.J. TAVENER was a crewmember of an Halifax (L9605) shot down on 31 May 42. It was an 1652 HCU aircraft. This airman was taken prisoner, but I can' find him in the PoW list, probably being help in an hospital.
Has anyone got his first names and service number?
