Flight Lieutenant Hugh Norman Coventry - 199 SquadronDes, In light of the ops list posted earlier, I went back and took another look at Let Tyrants Tremble (p.136). The entry for 15th September 1944, states: The 'Window Force' faired [sic] little better with F/Lt Harker ,LJ516 EX-H, returning early and F/Lt Coventry not taking off... Only other mention I could find! Here is a snippet from one of the Australian newspapers mentioning HNC: [url]http://nla.gov.au/nla.news-article204023805[/url] You will notice there is some missing text (can't be corrected, it was a label applied to the original). Here is the missing text from the two paragraphs: One of the Australian-based R.A.F. squadrons conducts a thrice-weekly service between Sydney and Perth, handling naval freight, passengers and mail. This squadron works in close co-operation with the Indian Ocean commercial services. On the Pacific side there is a bi-weekly Vancouver-San Diego-Sydney run, and the regular service between Sydney and the Philippines. Throughout Australia the RAF transport command operate Dakotas and the transport wing is commanded by an Australian, Wing Commander G. T. Gilbert*, of Melbourne, who formerly was with the RAF Bomber Command and Coastal Command, and who for 18 months, was with the Transport Command, ferrying reinforcement aircraft serving in North Africa and Italy. * 34208 W/C Gradon Title GILBERT RAF.
