LEJ Davenports POW Wartime Log - A List of names???I have managed to obtain and read my grandads wartime log from being a POW from 1941 - 45. On his travels he was in the same camp as Douglas Bader. Interestingly in this book it lists many names and in some instances addresses of people who wrote in my grandads book and left messages. I thought it would be interesting if I shared the names with you all as it contains RAF, Army etc, worth a look it may bring up a relative!! Here goes: Grandads name: Leslie Ernest John Davenport Service Number: 964692 Squadron 7 Bomber Command This is the crew he was shot down with: 7th September 1941. All were POWs. (N6046 MG-Y?)

Squadron 7 Stirling Bombers - Can you help?Dear all, I was interested to see this thread developing. During the research of my book the Nachtjagd War Diaries I have been unable to find any details about a possible German night fighter claim for 7 Sqn Stirling N6046. (In Chorley's 1941 Volume on Bomber Command losses he mentions that this a/c was shot down by a night fighter and crashed at Recklinghausen). Do any of you have further info on the cause of loss of this aircraft and the time of the loss? You can reach me at theoboitenATversatel.nl Cheers, Theo ....Read More.Theo Boiten on 18th March 2010 04:07:00
