I think that's why he was awarded the DSO. I understand he was awarded the DFC for crash landing a plane with a full complement of primed TIs on board after the bomb doors jammed. He ordered the rest of the crew to bale out, but one man's parachute was burned, so instead of baling out himself he flew it home. He managed to get clear before the whole lot went up. As I understand it he was in one of four Halifax III's (his being HX325) of Sqdrn 35 shot down 20th / 21st January 1944 whilst on a massive raid on Leipzig. We lost many other planes and crew that night. Squadron 35 (subsequently 635), was one of the elite Pathfinder Squadrons, which dropped TI (Target Indicator) incendiary bombs for the following aircraft to use as aiming points, so their navigation and bombing ...[URL="https://developers.facebook.com/tools/comments#"]See More[/URL] Public Oct 10, 2017 6:38pm ------------------------------------------------- [URL="https://www.facebook.com/jon.brooke.338"][IMG]https://scontent.fphl2-2.fna.fbcdn.net/v/t1.0-1/p48x48/12122902_971941322866768_5563627705180077271_n.jpg?oh=e8c504af607d3d09f298beb2d767f645&oe=5A3E1333[/IMG][/URL] [URL="https://www.facebook.com/jon.brooke.338"]Jon Brooke[/URL] Commented on [URL]http://www.rafcommands.com/archive/08985.php[/URL] Hello there - John Vincent Brooke would have been my uncle had he lived longer.

Re-location of No.3 PRC to Bournemouth from Uxbridge in 1941?[QUOTE=PeteT;132796]"Flying Training and Support Units of The RAF" shows that it was at Uxbridge from February to June 1941 Regards Pete[/QUOTE] Thanks for this, Pete. I've just come across Uxbridge also being used as a PDC (Personnel Dispatch Centre - in Oct 1941.... & certainly in 1945, as 100 PDC ) - and then there's the possibility of the labelling PDRC (Personnel Dispatch and Reception Centre) - so my search continues... Seems that Uxbridge continued to deal with re-location of airmen as well as B'mouth - which perhaps dealt [I]only[/I] with the newly-trained, freshly-arrived into UK from July 1941 ?
